Fanbirds Workshop

The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre, Hexham, NE47 7AN

11 Dec 2022, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Don’t miss the creative Fanbirds Workshop at The Sill this December.

Fan birds originated in Eastern Europe as a traditional decoration hung in the home that catches gentle breezes and so draws the eye too.

They are made from a single piece of wood using simple hand tools only. It needs a steady hand and steadier nerves when it comes to opening your birds wings to reveal your creation. Come and try your hand at making these lovely creatures.

The course runs for 3 hours at The Sill and refreshments will be available throughout the afternoon. No previous experience is needed though we will be working with sharp hand tools and carving knives.

Over 18s Only.
