Learn the skills needed to deconstruct pallets,
before making your own pallet planter & taking it home on the day!The Salvage Sister taught Kirsty Allsopp how to make this pallet planter on stage in front of 200 people at The Handmade Fair - if she can do it, so can you! During this 5 hour Pallet Planter Workshop you will learn the skills needed to create your very own colourful pallet planter, including where to look for pallets, which ones work best, and how to take apart pallets and cut down ready to reconfigure into a beautiful solid wood planter. The Salvage Sister will guide you through the build, teaching you how to use all the power tools involved and what lasting fixings to use in the garden environment. When you've built your own pallet planter you will have the option to make it into a strawberry trough and leave some gaps in the sides for the strawberries to hang through, or fill the sides with pallet planks. (You can line your planter with a hessian sack when you get home to stop earth falling through the gaps until the roots of your bounty hold it all together) Once you’ve learnt these skills you will be able to repeat this process at home to make as many troughs & planters as you like in the future - saving you loads of cash, not to mention time & stress!
