DIY Workshops


All of us at The Goodlife Centre understand how frustrating it is not to be able to do all those ‘simple’ tasks yourself. Sometimes it’s baffling to understand why its difficult to get someone to come and do them and even more baffling to understand the amount they need to charge. No More.

All of our DIY classes start from beginner level and are directed at home owners and tenants who would like to learn practical skills and gain confidence to tackle simple maintenance jobs at home.

DIY in a Day focuses on practicing how to become proficient with a power drill, hang things onto walls, how to  how put up basic shelves, blinds and curtains and fill small drill holes in a wall.  The overview of a plumbing system gives you experience in fixing leaky taps and replacing dodgy bath sealant. A perfect jump start for new home owners. It does not include any Basic Electrics and the plumbing section is a little shorter than the evening version.

In Basic Plumbing there is plenty of time to learn how water travels around your home, how to isolate water supply, fix a leaky tap, rescue something from a U bend and unclog a blocked sink. You will  also learn how to replace sealant around the bath. All the basic essentials that you need to be able to do yourself without the expense of calling someone in.

In Basic Electrics you learn how to stay safe in your home by finding out what you legally can and can’t do yourself in this practical, hands-on workshop. Learn how to build a basic light circuit and how to detect and avoid faulty wiring when preforming simple repairs. Practice changing switch and socket plates and learn how to replace a ceiling pendant fitting. The workshop is led by a qualified electrician.

We have plenty of hand and power tools and you will get a chance to practice with them all. If you want to bring your own drill to master it, feel free. However, there is no need to bring anything to a workshop – we supply everything – including aprons and cups of tea.

All personal protection, tools and materials are included. More details of individual workshops can be found on each choice below.
