Posted on September 11, 2013 in News

Join WICAT (Women in Construction, Arts and Technology) for volunteer weekends this autumn:
  • Learn new skills
  • Have a go at bricklaying and mixing mortar
  • Help make a better community garden


  • Saturday 5 October & Sunday 6 October
  • 3 sessions each day – 9.30 – 11.30, 12.30 – 2.30 & 3.00 – 5.00. Come for any of the sessions, or all day  or the whole weekend!


At the Women’s Construction Centre, 21 Buckenham Street, Burngreave, Sheffield S4 7JQ


WICAT will be sprucing up a disused yard, and building a low wall to create a garden space and make the car park more accessible. They need help moving some materials around, if you are happy and comfortable to get stuck in!

Experienced bricklaying tutors will guide you, and they can provide gloves and some safety boots. Please wear suitable clothing for working outside including stout boots.

This is a collaboration between WICAT and the Hindu Samaj and the wider community.

They will be there rain or shine, unless the weather is too inclement.  They’ll provide refreshments and snacks, but please bring a packed lunch. See WICAT’s website for details and please get in touch to let them know you are coming on 0114 272 5360 or 07813 126388, and wicat2011@gmail.com
