Get Handy – 3 Day Carpentry Workshop Starting Tuesday 18th, 19th, 20th Jan 2022


Have you completed our D.I. Y / Repair workshops and want to know more?

Do you want to step it up a notch and get your hands on some carpentry skills?

This course is a great progression from our DIY / REPAIR workshop

This 3Day Carpentry Course will give you the knowledge, confidence & skills to start tackling your own carpentry projects.  This course has been carefully designed to equip you with the skills and techniques to get started with confidence.

We will focus on the different timbers used when building and will complete a small decking project from start to finish teaching you how to notch and fix timbers. These skills can be transferred to many projects around the house such as

  • Work Bench
  • Day Bed
  • Storage Seating
  • Timber screening
  • Side Tables and so much more

The course is capped to 6 students for maximum handson experience.
