An selection of enjoyable ‘hands-on’ one day workshops that cover many of the common aspects of basic DIY. If you have just bought your home and have realised it didn’t include a landlord to fix stuff, these days are for you. There is plenty of time to practice on several exercises throughout each day.
In DIY in a Day – Drills, we explain how to attach a shelf, curtain rods and blinds to brick, tile and hollow walls by learning to select the correct drill bit, wall fixing and screw. Along the way, we show you how to remove old wall fixings and what to do with the ones you can’t. The workshop also covers hanging pictures and heavier objects like cupboards and flat screen TVs. You will hang a hook, then a baton , a pair of shelf brackets and finally learn how to fit a shelf into an alcove.If you are thinking of upgrading your drill, you can test all of the ones we use and feel more knowledgeable of what you want to buy.
In DIY in a Day – Plumbing, we cover some basic but important plumbing skills. You will learn how to fix a dripping tap and how to clear clogged drains to keep your water running. A professional plumber will explain your central heating systems, what to do with running WC cisterns and fitting new washing machines.You can also practice removing and replacing grotty sealant around a bath.This a fun fast day with plenty of tools to try and lots of advice on which tools to have in a basic toolkit.
Both courses are especially suitable if you are not handy or if you are able but not that confident about tackling small but important tasks in your home.
