This week's CREATIVE CABIN SHORT is created by boatbuilder and storyteller, Gail McGarva.

"The words of the song express my feelings about being a wooden boat builder and my building of ‘daughterboats’, breathing life into a new generation of traditional craft. The title of the film and the refrain in the song echo the words of the boat designer Uffa Fox who spoke of craft being made by hands guided by a loving heart. The hands of loving hearts are at work in so many realms of life and particularly so in the NHS in these challenging times."

Harmony arranged and performed by Penny Dunscombe
Photography: Rebecca Collis and Julia Hutton
Pebbles on the shore: Kerry Maguire
