Girls with Drills - Intro to Bricklaying Week 1 & 2

August 2 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

A non binary person with short brown hair and glasses bricklaying

Join us for week 1 & 2 of our Intro to Bricklaying course. In the first week you'll get to grips with the tools and materials used for bricklaying, practice mixing mortar, learn how to cut bricks, and build a simple wall. During the second week you will be finessing you skills and finishing your brick wall.

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

This is a 5 week course. You must attend the first two weeks (2nd & 9th August) in order to attend the following weeks (16th, 23rd, 30th August). 

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.

Who's it for?

Adults aged 18+
