Give it a Crack: Woodworking

Give it a Crack: Woodworking

This workshop gives woodwork novices the chance to make something from scratch. Kisha brings the wood, screws, nails and upcycled bits and bobs, and you’re invited to bring your imagination to craft whatever you fancy. However, if you do need a helping hand, Kisha also has instructions on how to build a birdhouse. Every participant will leave with something, and hopefully the skills to use drills and handsaws at home.

This workshop will run alongside others at an event for people who have always wanted to try the activities but have never got the chance or been too nervous about joining an established group. These workshops are for beginners (if you're not a beginner - this is not the event for you and if you come just to show off - you will be given a hard stare, Paddington Bear style).

The event starts at 11 am with welcome hot drinks & snacks (included in ticket price) and time to chat and discuss future Give it a Crack activities we'd like to try.

The workshops will start at 11.30am and will last between 1.5 to 2 hours.

We will then make our way to a local watering hole (Rutland Arms) for drinks and food - this section of the event is optional, but all are welcome.
