TWO HOUR COURSE
Learn basic skills including setting out tiling work, different adhesives, tools, cutting tiles, tiling around difficult areas etc.

As they say, it’s all in the prep, in this case, prep is not just getting your tools ready. If your walls or floor are not square or level then laying your tiles requires much more thought. Cutting the tile is the easy part and mixing the adhesive or grout is no more difficult than baking a cake. Adding trim to tile edges, creating tile joints with symmetry to the surroundings and making sure all your tiles are level with each other make the difference between a botched job and one you are proud to show off.

REVIEWS

I've been on two courses run by David now and both have been excellent. His knowledge is incredible. He's a talented teacher with a good sense of humour. I would definitely recommend.

"Several 'lightbulb' moments for me on the course that have made it worth the cost on their own. Just enough about a lot of different things to leave me with much more confidence than I had before. Thank you."

"Great course. Would recommend it for complete beginners as a good foundation. Also good for people who have done some DIY to brush up on basic skills."
