Want something that you and your family can do together?

B&Q kids workshops are fun and a chance for you to enjoy making something together.

  • We'll let you have a go yourself under the guidance of our DIY experts
  • We'll teach you new skills such as sawing, drilling, gluing and nailing
  • Ages of 7-11 accompanied by a parent or guardian

With more than 15 workshops to choose from there is something for everyone. One week you might be making mug holders and the next perfecting planters or building bird boxes for the garden, but all under the watchful eye of our very own kids workshops experts at selected B&Q warehouses.
