This course will enable you to learn the skills to make a hedgehog box of your own design, which you will take home with you at the end of the day. The course will be led by Tom Lister, an experienced carpenter and woodwork tutor at the fully fitted Hollybush workshop, and all materials are inclusive.
The course will run between 10am and 3pm, with refreshment and lunch breaks.
All equipment and materials will be provided, though participants are welcome to bring their own safety boots and gloves if they prefer. Course are taught in a well ventilated space, so please dress for the time of year!
This course is for participants aged 18+.
Hollybush is a Conservation Centre in Kirkstall that has been working with the local community for over 40 years to offer volunteering opportunities and adult learning.
The site has its own community café, serving drinks and cakes and hot & cold food (all vegetarian & vegan). Participants on the course will receive a 20% discount on purchases from the café on the day.
How to find us:
Hollybush is a former farmhouse located on Broad Lane in Kirkstall, at the junction with Bridge Road (B6157). Please consider the environmental impact of your visit to Hollybush and walk, cycle or use public transport if possible. Bike storage is available, but please bring your own lock!
We are a two-minute walk from bus stops at the Bridge Shopping Centre (numbers 91 and 49) and Kirkstall Morrisons/Kirkstall Road (numbers 33,34,35 and 508). We are a ten-minute walk from Headingley Train Station.
We have limited parking on site reserved for blue badge holders and those with limited mobility. Other visitors travelling by car have the kind permission of Morrison’s to park at the far end of their carpark, a short walk from Hollybush. There is also a very small public carpark off Whyther Lane, by the canal.
Hollybush in Kirkstall is an environmental volunteering centre that has been running for over 40 years. Our volunteers help to manage green spaces across Leeds and beyond. We welcome people of all backgrounds and experience.
