Evening Workshops

Our evening workshops are perfect for you to drop into on the way home from work.

The Goodlife Centre is easy to access from either Borough (Northern line) or Southwark (Jubilee line) tube stations and each class starts at 6.30 pm and lasts for two and a half hours, so you will not be too frazzled after a fully day of work and learning. Aprons are provided to protect designer suits and though it’s a working space, we keep our workshop rather clean and sawdust free. We provide coat rails, tea and biscuits to give you a lift after a hard day at the desk.

Our regular evening workshops are usually short and snappy DIY workshops that can be taken as individual modules such as Basic Plumbing, Basic Electrics, Basic Drill Skills and Basic Tiling. Take them all or dip in and out as your needs change and your desire to learn more about home maintenance increases.

For the more creative types, we have also run a series of evening classes that cover skills such as Basic Woodwork & Carpentry, Woodcarving, Restoration and various Upholstery courses.

Sign up for our newsletter to hear all about our new classes as they go online.

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