Corinne Reed

Corinne is a member of the Lyme Regis Gig Club Sea Shanty Singers (who recently performed for HRH The Duke of Kent after his visit to the Boat Building Academy) and is also one of The Luggers, Lyme Regis’s Ukulele band.  Corinne taught counselling at an FE College in Buckinghamshire before moving to Lyme in 2013 and hadn’t done any practical work before.  By joining the course Corinne killed a number of birds with one stone; she learned woodworking, built her own ukulele as part of the course and spent three months with son Will… who is the Academy’s Woodworking Skills Instructor.  Will says ‘Once she stopped calling me darling in the workshop it worked very well’.
