Want to build growing boxes for your herbs and veggies?

Join Anna Vlassova, artist and furniture maker, to learn how to transform an ordinary pallet into different sizes and shapes of planter for indoor or outdoor use.

We will gain basic practical skills in constructing and joining with recycled wood, and discuss together the different growing spaces required by a range of plants.

This workshop is perfect for people who’d like to turn a small outdoor space into a thriving garden for growing food. No experience necessary.
