Gnìomhan Gàidhealach – Traditional Tasks with Fèisean nan Gàidheal
The succesful residential event 5 Latha (5 Days) will be held again this year at the Gearrannan Blackhouses, Isle of Lewis between 8-13 April 2013.
Up to sixteen Gaelic speaking participants of high school age will have the opportunity to spend five days in a community where Gaelic is used naturally and in which crofting, fishing and the Harris Tweed industry play an important part in the lives of its residents.
Each day participants will have the opportunity to gain a hands-on experience of these traditional works, spending time with experienced individuals who will show them what is involved in their daily routines from lambing, looking after cattle, fishing, peat cutting to producing Harris Tweed.
The sixteen particpants will also have the opportunity to learn some traditional recipes through practical cookery sessions using locally sourced ingredients.
Though a musical ability is not essential to attend 5 Latha, there will be music and song workshops throughout the week which will be delivered by two of our finest musicians; well known fiddler Iain MacFarlane (Blazin Fiddles) and Gaelic singer Norrie MacIver (Mànran)
