The first of our Woodworking – Waste to Wonder eco-friendly series. Children over the duration of three-day course will make, paint and decorate two useful upcycled projects they will be proud of. The first day children will make a planter box for herbs and/or flowers. The second day they move on to making a Bird Nesting House building on their woodworking skills. The third day is the finishing day where children will touch up if necessary, sand, paint, decorate and plant. Children aged 10+ will bring two fully completed projects which have been made using repurposed timbers.
This course is designed to be hands-on where children will learn new and valuable skills in woodwork using recycled timber. Each day’s skills building on the next. They will learn various foundation skills and techniques. These will include correct use of standard woodworking tools and most importantly using good safety practises.
Progressively over the Woodworking – Waste to Wonder 3-day course children will make two specific projects which will repurpose and give new life to more relatable timber items. The chosen projects will encourage creative thinking and are pieces children will enjoy making.
