Event description

Description

The Selfbuild Bootcamp is for you
Whether you’re at the concept stage and want to learn more, are further along the line with a project that’s underway, or an investor looking to set up a business, this new, one-day course is open to everyone.

Pick from two workshops or attend a mix of both…
The courses are divided into two subject areas – self-build and renovating – and you can switch between all of the workshops, depending on which topics are of interest. Your ticket also includes free access to Grand Designs Live, so you can plan your time to gain the most out of the show and the Selfbuild Bootcamp. The 45-minute to one-hour-long workshops run from 8:30am and finish at 6pm.

Listen, learn and put your questions to the panel of Selfbuild Bootcamp professionals
