After well-attended sessions last year, Constable Community Allotment are putting on another ‘Green Woodworking Workshop’ with local craftsman Graham Johnson.
This session is FREE but donations will be welcome. You will need to book a place on this, as numbers are limited! Hot drinks provided, bring your own lunch. Green woodworking is the art of using wood that isn’t dry or seasoned. It’s a common technique for building chairs, benches and stools. All products are made without the use of electrical power. Come along and try your hand at green woodworking! To book contact Lausanne 07816 141169. More info and photos at www.constableallotment.org.
Calling all tinkerers, fixers, sewers, menders, makers and doers!
Bean & Nothingness Cafe and TimeBank Hull & East Riding are joining forces to launch our Bean & Fixed It repair cafe – where well loved items are given a new lease of life! The re-use revolution has been spreading across the city, with cafes popping up in the west. We think this is great, and we’d like to complement them by offering town-goers a place to go and get it fixed too!
The event will take place at the Bean & Nothingness cafe on the 6 July from 11 am – 1 pm. If you know your way around a toolbox and fancy being a fixer at the event, we’d love to hear from you. Contact Holly on 07843 352481.
Every Thursday from now on Bite the Biscuit Neighbourhood Market will take place from 11 to 4 at St Mathew’s Church
