ONE-DAY DIY COURSE IN SURREY
Always handing money to tradesmen with that nagging feeling you could have done it yourself? Well this is the course for you!
Learning how to take control of essential DIY in your own home has suddenly become a whole lot easier and a whole lot more fun.
We have opened up our workshop in beautiful Surrey countryside for a series of one day courses, to teach people like you how to get to grips with all aspects of home maintenance.
We will take you through a number of lessons which will give you the confidence to tackle numerous tasks in the home, from shelf and mirror installation to hanging those blinds – from the locks on your front door to unblocking the kitchen sink.
We’ll tell you what tools you need, how to use them and where to get them. Very quickly you’ll build a familiarity with things you thought were for tradesmen only – and save money in the process!
You will be learning in a small group (max 6 people) to ensure our full attention for the tasks in play. We do suggest that you make some comments on the booking form regarding the particular skills you want to learn, though please bear in mind we have a particular routine which we need to adhere to within reason.
Below is a list of Topics covered:
- Fire extinguishers, smoke alarms etc.
- Burglary prevention: keys, locks etc.
- Basic plumbing issues
- Basic electrical issues
- Lighting types: LED, strip etc.
- Blinds and curtain hanging
- Putting up shelves, cabinets etc.
- Tools: what you need – the good and the bad
- Wood: plywood, mdf etc. – what to use and where
- Paint: learn the different types
- Glues: what to use
- Tips, tricks and general useful information
Regarding dress, you should wear old trousers, a shirt or t-shirt, jersey, trainers or similar and hair protection if required. We will supply aprons, gloves, ear and eye protection.
The workshop is on a farm so we recommend having a pair of boots to hand especially if the weather is bad.
There are some great walks in the surrounding countryside for those who want some additional exercise in the late afternoon. In addition there are many places to visit in the vicinity for those with family members who are not actually doing the course.
We certainly have some suggestions.
Do bear in mind that our course is a perfect (and unusual) Birthday or Wedding present and will always be a useful store of knowledge in the push button world of today.
