An enjoyable ‘hands on’ one day workshop that covers 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, this day is for you. There is plenty of time to practice on several exercises over the day.
We explain how to put up a shelves, 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 and then a pair of shelf brackets.
The day also teaches basic plumbing skills. You will learn how to fix a dripping tap and how to clear clogged drains to keep your water running and 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.
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.
This course is especially suitable if you not handy or if you are able but not that confident about tackling small but important tasks in your home.
All personal protection, tools and materials are included. Beginners welcome.
