At this practical and fun workshop you will come away with all the knowledge and skills to draught proof your home. This helps you to be cozy in the winter so you feel more comfortable and save on heating.

Lish Fejer from Green-it-yourself, will give an interactive presentation explain what you can do to a property to improve it’s energy efficiency, including practical demonstrations of draught stopping gear.

Jenny Edwards from Light House Architecture and Science, will set up a blower door test. This is pretty amazing to experience, and demonstrates exactly where draughts are coming from. It also can tell us  how much better the house performs at the end of the workshop.

You’ll then get to practice your new skills by using silicone, foam and other fun gear to seal up gaps and vents.

This workshops are a great way for you to experience first-hand just how draughty a typical home can be, learn about how to stops draughts and  to caulk like a pro!

We hope that you can go home and draught proof your own house. To help you along, we’ll pick three random participants to receive a $50 Bunnings voucher, so they can stock up on draught stopping gear.

More Info: Tea/coffee and light snacks will be provided. Please note this workshop will start at 1:30pm and finish at 4:30pm, this is not a ‘drop in’ event.
