Make your own Fan Bird at The Sill. Saturday 26th March 2022

£30.00
Coming Soon


Fanbirds originated in Russia and 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 sessions take place at The Sill, National Landscape Discovery Centre, Bardon Mill, Northumberland, NE47 7AN and runs between 1pm and 4pm.

Refreshments will be available throughout the afternoon.
