      “This is a fantastic course for anyone who needs a little reassurance with tools. Penny is a patient and kind teacher with a great sense of humour. Before I did this course, I couldn’t use a drill, now I’m a confident “handy-woman” in my home. It’s rather liberating knowing you do it yourself.  Thanks Penny!”
