Learn how to bricklay in this introductory 5 week course.

Week 1 - Learn about the tools and materials needed for bricklaying, learn how to mix mortar, learn how to cut bricks, learn the correct technique for laying bricks, and build a simple brick wall.

Week 2 - Build on your skills from the previous week and complete your wall.

You must attend week 1 and week 2 if you want to attend the following weeks unless you have some previous experience bricklaying.

Weeks 3-5 - You will be building something for use by the local community, either a pizza oven, fire pit, BBQ, or something else. We will teach you how to prepare the area, measure for materials, lay down the courses, and finish to a high standard.

We’ll provide all the tools, materials, safety equipment and expertise to help you learn DIY.

There will also be the opportunity to do some open gardening, the Carers Garden is a place for everyone to enjoy and we want to give you the space to be able to be creative however you wish to be! Open gardening can include (but isn't limited to) planting seeds, trimming bushes, tidying areas, cutting grass, and other things that might need our attention on the day.

You will be outdoors for most of the day, please make sure you dress accordingly. If it's hot and sunny, make sure you wear sunscreen and have a hat...alternatively if its cold/rainy please wrap up warm! In both instances please wear closed toe shoes, boots are more suitable but trainers are also okay.
