A hands-on workshop where you will gain practical skills and experience of materials, tools and construction methods.

You can personalise your box with non-toxic paint or decorations and take it home at the end of the session to put up in your garden or give as a gift.

No prior knowledge or skills are needed, just a willingness to have a go. The workshop involves the use of hand tools so is suitable for adults and supervised children over the age of 10. All materials and tools are included. Recycled materials will be used where possible.

You will learn

How to use hand tools properly and safely

Different box construction methods

Box types and access hole sizes for different species

How and where to site your box

Spaces are limited, so be sure to reserve your spot now. Don't miss out on this opportunity to create something special for our feathered friends!

Please note

Depending on weather conditions, part of this workshop may be hosted in our garden, so please come prepared and bring suitable warm clothing.
