Building School Exchange Program


Julien Blondeau, is a trainee ship's carpenter from the Brittany boat building school, Ateliers de L'Enfer, based in Douarnenez.

He has already completed one exchange visit to a boat building project in Cornwall, England, and is now at The ILEN School of Wooden Boat Building in Limerick, Ireland for a further four week training programme.

His exchange visits are being funded by the European Social Fund.

The ILEN School is the National Centre for Wooden Boat Building in Ireland, is staffed mostly by volunteers and is currently looking for people trained as carpenters who might wish to contribute their experience and assist with projects and workshop supervision.
