Join us for our practical “hands on” one day basic woodworking workshop. Learn woodworking skills to enable you to tackle a wide range of common DIY repair and improvement tasks around the home. Do the words architrave, dado rails and skirting’s sound foreign to you and the thought of laying your own laminate flooring fill you with fear. Then this woodworking workshop is for you and can save you hundreds of pounds by teaching you the knowhow.
This practical workshop will provide a firm knowledge base to enable you to put your new found skills into practice and tackle other styles of woodworking projects. It’s a great follow on from our DIY in a Day – Drill skills but can also be taken as a standalone module. The day is intensive, but the atmosphere is relaxed and enjoyable which creates a good learning environment.
