PEOPLE will be able to learn how to build yurts at a series of upcoming workshops.

The workshops will be run by Glen’s Yurt Factory and will take place at Willow Hey community involvement project, in Doe Hey Grove, Farnworth.

It will involve learning all aspects of yurt building, such as steam bending, yurt sewing, yurt wheel building, yurt trellis construction and rafter shaving.

The workshops will take place at 12.30pm and 5pm on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday this week.

The event organiser said: “We’re splitting this in to six sessions, but basically we will just continue with the various processes throughout the 3 days.

“The idea of having six sessions is so that if you attend just one you will get to see all of the processes.

“However, please feel free to attend as many as you like so you can get a better feel and flavour of it all.

“Depending on numbers it will be a demonstration rather than ‘hands on’, but if you come on a session with low numbers then there is a possibility of having a go at things.”

The event is free. Contact Colin on 07984 123891if you are interested in attending.
