Make a dingle, dangle scarecrow
Pop Up Patch
Free scarecrow making sessions @ the Pop Up Patch, Fed Square


Hungry birds have always been a problem for gardeners. It's no different in the middle of the CBD at Fed Square's Pop Up Patch. Luckily there's a tried and and true way to scare them off. Scarecrows have been used to fend off birds for over 3000 years. The crew at the Pop Up Patch are helping to protect Melbourne's gardens with free Scarecrow Making Workshops. The workshops will be held on Sundays in December and January between 11am and 12pm. The Pop Up Patch can be found in the car park at the rear of Fed Square.

Pop Up Patch
Put thought into the features you would like your scarecrow to have.


Scarecrow making can be a messy business so it's important to wear old clothes to the workshops. Frame, twine, straw and other necessary scarecrow materials will be provided. At the end of the session participants will get to take their scarecrow home. If you catch public transport, it could make for an interesting conversation starter. Bookings are not required.
