Learn woodworking skills and take home this modern planter box, made by you!

Join Heather from Re4m Design and Fabrication in a DIY workshop! She will guide you through the process of building your own eco-planter box.

This workshop is all about sustainability and the wood used has been sourced or rescued from local, responsible sources. We’ll provide you with all the tools you need and our experienced instructors will be on hand to offer advice and guidance throughout.

We can’t wait to see what you create!

The built dimensions of the planter box are 26″x9.5″x6″ which will fit inserts of 24″x6.5″x7.5″ (bought separately).
