Self Build Academy Taster Sessions

Self Build Academy Taster Sessions

Build It has teamed up with Potton to create a series of Self Build Academy taster sessions – for you to sample some of their full day courses. These 20 minute taster sessions are an opportunity for you to get a ‘taste’ of what to expect from their full day courses, which run at Potton’s show centre throughout the year.

Sessions cover all build systems and offer impartial, practical advice – pick up some top tips for your project at Build It Live! Availability is on a first-come, first-served basis. Please see below an example programme. The Bicester schedule will be confirmed nearer the time.
