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 practising how to hang things onto walls, how to put up basic shelves, blinds and curtains and gives you experience in fixing leaky taps and dodgy bath sealant. A perfect jump start for new home owners.

Learn Basic Drill Skills. Would you like to put shelves and curtains up ... that stay up? You are not alone! In this fast paced evening workshop we share the 'know how' of a corded and cordless drill. We'll show you why the power tool is your friend and give you the confidence to master it in just one evening.

In Basic Plumbing there is plenty of time to learn how to isolate water supply, fix a leaky tap, rescue something from a U bend and unclog a blocked sink. 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 detect and avoid faulty wiring when preforming simple repairs. Practice changing switch and socket plates. Build a switched light circuit.

We have plenty of hand and power tools and you will get a chance to practice with them all. 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.
