A shipwright and his young apprentice work surrounded by the tools of their trade. It is a rather messy workshop, the floor is covered with tools, boxes and other items amid the shavings created by the wright, who is planing a piece of wood. The apprentice is sitting upon a length of wood that may become the keel of a boat. The large opening behind him would allow a hull though and beyond we see the masts and rigging of a busy harbour.
For many years, this painting hung in the Queen’s Hotel in Penzance, as part of their extensive collection of Newlyn School pictures.
