Intro to Power Tools – ticketed
Over 18s

Amelia Bywater will lead three workshops providing an introduction to a power tool and the skills you need to complete woodwork & DIY tasks safely and effectively.

These workshops are perfect for beginners who want to get to know their power tools better and to be able to assess a DIY problem with creativity by knowing the scope of the tools and accessories available at the tool library.

Intro to Sewing – ticketed
Over 18s

This two-hour workshop, led by GTL’s wonderful volunteer Margaret Mitchel, introduces you to the basics of a sewing machine through sewing your own tool roll, such as chisels. You are welcome to bring your own tools (small gardening tools, jewellery, etc) and make your tool roll to their measurements. Materials are provided, but if you have material you would like to use, feel free to bring them with you.

Cycle Saturdays with Bike For Good – drop-in/ free

Join Bike for Good at Civic Street for their ‘learn to ride’ lessons in the morning and a led bike ride in the afternoon. Fancy a smoothie? You can pedal your own with B4G’s smoothie bike all day at Civic Street Yard.
