Do Birds Hit in the Woods

Do Birds Hit in the Woods

Posted on behalf of Fermynwoods Contemporary Art

Join us for a day in the woods with Birds Hit Records for a unique opportunity to cut your own custom vinyl record. Each bespoke vinyl record will be formed individually, cut by a lathe in real time.

Birds Hit Records are a Manchester company specialising in handcrafted, small batch production of vinyl. Specialist sound engineer John will share his expert knowledge and experience of making lathe cut records and help you to create your own vinyl disc.* 

Participants will learn about the history of vinyl records, discover the magic of lathe cutting and learn how to edit sound recordings specifically for putting onto vinyl.  

A vegetarian lunch is included. Please come prepared with appropriate clothing and footwear for outdoors.

For more information, contact Jessica at

*To attend this workshop, you must bring your own prerecorded sounds or music. This workshop will not include the recording process, but focus on mastering for vinyl and vinyl production. 

Important: As part of a continuing dedication to sustainability (see our Environmental Policy), Fermynwoods has committed to serving only vegetarian food at events and workshops, though participants are welcome to bring their own food if desired. Please state any additional dietary requirements when booking a place on the workshop. 

Do Birds Hit in the Woods is the sixth of our Outdoor Institute of Art: Wild Sharing workshops, where our unique location and communal approach brings like-minded people together for peer-to-peer learning, informal skill and knowledge sharing, providing both a creative and social opportunity.
