Car Maintenance Workshop

On Saturday 27th October, in Shawbost we held our workshop on ‘Car maintenance’ with Denis ‘Denis Autos’ sharing his knowledge and wisdom on how to look after our cars, also various other stories on every type of vehicle you can think of!  Much to the delight of those present who all left having had a great abdominal workout with all the laughing!

There are many other workshops running in the coming weeks and we hope these will be of interest to you – the aim of the workshops is to provide a platform for people of all levels of ability in Gaelic to come together to use the language while learning new skills.

Cookery Demonstration

On Saturday 3rd November we held the second of our ‘cothroman cleachdaidh’ workshops in Shawbost.  Alasdair Macleod (Point), put his cookery skills into action and whipped up a 3 course meal with soup and soda bread, followed by duck and a strawberry based dessert which went down a treat by all 19 who attended!

The event was highly successful with an excellent evening had by all who attended.  The event was also a success with the Gaelic element as both learners and fluent speakers of all ages using and developing their fluency of Gaelic in a friendly, informal environment.  With the success of this event, we plan to continue to work together to provide more opportunities like this which will be of interest to members of the community and will promote Gaelic in the area.

These workshops were arranged by Iomairt Ghàidhlig Iar Thuath Leòdhais.
