Beginners DIY & Home Maintenance Workshop in Cheadle, Gr Manchester (1 Day)



Treat Yourself to a 'Me Day' and learn to be independent in your home whilst making some new like-minded friends in a relaxed, supportive and beautiful environment. No previous DIY experience needed at all. Ideal for complete beginners or for those of you who have dabbled in bits of DIY already but would like to expand on your skills. I'd love to welcome you to this one day (10 am to 3 pm) 'DIY and Home Maintenance Workshop' in a relaxed and friendly environment in the lovely Village Hall in Cheadle, Greater Manchester. The workshop includes: - Hammering, drilling & fixings: drill bits, fitting rawl plugs, screws & nails - Checking for electric wires, water and gas pipes before drilling - Hanging a level shelf & picture - Filling gaps & fillers - Electrical: about safety and fuses, rewire a plug/change a fuse, rewire a light fitting - Plumbing: fixing a leaky tap, repair a leaky water pipe, bleeding a radiator - Painting and Decorating And many more useful tips You will learn how to do those pesky jobs and fix those annoying bits in your home and garden. You will undoubtedly save time and money by getting stuck in rather than waiting for someone to do them for you, and possibly paying over the odds for something you could easily do in a flash! I will be there every step of the way to guide you and take you through each job and process at your pace. With such a small group, there is plenty of time for one to one discussion and to answer all of your questions. Full workshop notes on techniques, tools and materials will be provided. Having taught workshops for the past five years, my attendees have reported they don't just leave with lots of invaluable new skills, but they say they have enjoyed a lovely day out from their busy lives and pressures (with lots of chats, laughs, coffee and cake!), they have met some lovely new friends, and have been inspired to continue at home. Please see all of the lovely reviews from attendees of my other workshops. If you have any questions in advance of booking your place please scroll to the bottom and select 'message the tutor'.
