The sessions have a focus on making and mending – the kind of activities that you might get up to in your garden shed. The weekly session takes place in our fully equipped Boiler House woodworking workshop.
During these sessions you will make household items like chopping boards, shelving, stools and tables. You will also be able to bring things from your home and shown how to repair them. These sessions and all materials are provided for free!
Don’t worry if you have no previous experience in woodworking, there will be a trainer to help you through your projects.
The course is free and open to people that are in part time/low paid work, in receipt of benefits. To register your interest please complete the following form: https://forms.gle/VFyWfyMNmEhpnFHh8
If you have any questions please call 0161 4656954 or email gro.yticehtwos@valsidal
- Organiser of Make and Mend
We want to build a healthier, greener city. Somewhere that’s full of beans. The kind of city you want to live in.
Nature in cities makes a lot of sense – it helps reduce flooding, tackle climate change, and improve air quality. Plus nature supports our health and wellbeing, and provides opportunities to strengthen communities.
Sow the City is an award winning, Manchester-based social enterprise, with a mission to empower communities to grow and live sustainably.
