It will be a practical guide suitable for those in the building trade, those looking to take on their own home repairs or anyone who would like some clarity in this often crucially misunderstood yet vital practice. Materials and tools will be provided alongside industry experts to give on site instruction and precise material recommendations for all projects.
Food and refreshments will be provided all day by the kitchens at Fernhill. Their in house chef offers a wide variety of meals in a great many styles, all made with produce either from the farm itself or locally sourced from the surrounding area. Overnight accommodation is also available throughout the course, across Fernhill’s many comfy, creative and charming habitation options.
