This one DIY course for beginners was designed specifically to teach you how to use your first tool kit safely and correctly and ultimately give you the courage to take on some of your own DIY home repairs.

Penny Petridis from female Tradie and founder or Get Handy Workshops says “This workshop is designed specifically to teach you as many skills as possible so you can have the confidence to go home and take on your own DIY project  yourself. Our students not only save money $$ from maintenance call outs but also feel empowered when they walk out that do. Thats the best part of the job “

Our Sydney DIY Workshops for beginner are run by Scarlett Steven who has been on the tools working in fine arts and Sculptures. She has experience in both wood and metal fabrication and loves folding up her sleeves getting amongst DIY home repairs.

She enjoys working with beginners especially – helping people gain new skills and confidence is the best bit!
