Beginners DIY

This DIY workshop is all about building practical confidence. At the end of the day, you will be itching to go home and try out your new skills.

We will introduce you to essential hand and power tools for carrying out projects around the house, and teach you how to use them safely.

You will have the chance to try out different tools, and we will give you advice to help you start buying your own tools and building your own tool kit.

We will then use different DIY projects to teach you some useful skills. You will learn how to plan & prepare different kinds of DIY project.  When it comes to you tackling a new DIY project at home, you will be able to plan, start & finish with confidence.

Safety, and working safely will be an important part of this DIY Workshop
