“Penny is an amazing teacher and mentor. I have attended a couple of her workshops and she is very patient with all her students. I now know how to use power tools without damaging me or anything else. If you want to become a little bit more handy around the house, then check out Penny’s workshops”.

“Absolutely loved the carpentry course! Having little experience working with tools Penny took us through step-by-step so that we felt confident using tools and creating projects. I learnt so much. I would whole heartedly recommend this workshop to anyone. I’m so excited to use my new skills on future projects”

“I attended the Beginners DIY workshop with trainer Scarlette and had the best time! Scarlette was patient, knowledgeable, approachable and broke down the basics of how to use tools. It was a safe space to ask any question and we had some laughs along the way too. It was a great little group of 6 and she made sure every single one of us were successful. I left feeling empowered and wanted to go to Bunnings to buy my own drill! I would highly recommend anyone to the course and I’ve already got my eye on a few more. Thank you Penny and Scarlette!“
