CULT DIY // 02 // BIRDHOUSE
What to expect…
An introduction to confidently and safely use your power tools.
A step by step guide to building your bespoke Birdhouse, utilising the following skills: drilling, hole cutting, sawing, panel pinning, measuring, and finishing to a professional standard.
At the end of the 2 1/2 hour workshop you will have your own bespoke Birdhouse to take home and treasure forever. Plus tips on how to fix to the wall.
The workshop will start at 6:30pm so please arrive by 6:15pm to get settled in.
There will be complimentary tea, coffee, biscuits and Lick Frozen Yogurt provided but please also feel free to bring your own snacks if desired.
Who can come and how much does it cost?
Our DIY workshops are open to everyone over the ages of 18yrs. All of our DIY workshops will have limited spaces to ensure we can give beginners the full attention they need. Due to this we encourage people to book early.
The workshop costs £23 plus booking fee; this covers all materials needed, paint + brushes, access to power tools, tutoring and your finished product.
The finished product…
We will show you how to make a Birdhouse that can be used practically or as a decorative feature; such as a quirky key holder or desk tidy.
You will then get the chance to customise your Birdhouse, and everyone will leave with their own unique product.
We will be running our workshop in the Lick Warehouse; home to Brighton’s award winning Frozen Yoghurt. The lovely folk that run Lick are really excited to support our CULT DIY project so are facilitating everyone’s learning in their amazingly big, yet cosy office space.
The Lick Warehouse is situated on Level 2 of New England House (Just 5 minutes from Brighton Station!) The building looks big but everything is sign posted so you'll easily find us.
How many CULT DIY workshops will there be?
First in our series was Peg Boards, and now we present the Birdhouse. Every month we will be hosting an awesome new DIY workshop, with new products to create each time. This will allow you to build on your DIY skill set, whilst creating beautiful and practical handcrafted items for your homes and gardens. Dates for future workshops TBA soon - Please sign up to our mailing list to be the first to hear about them before they sell out.
