Basic Tiling


Basic Tiling

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.

Join us for an introductory class to uncover the mysteries of tiling.

"I was fortunate enough to have a "one to one" basic tiling course with David this month. He was very methodical and thorough when explaining how to get the basics of tiling done correctly and asked me about my own tiling project. We went through exactly what needed to be done and tools required, based on my own project, and gave me the confidence to cut my own tiles. Would definitely recommend this course."

"Really useful lesson on the basics which has definitely given me the confidence to tackle my own project. Only a couple of us in the lesson so plenty of opportunity to ask questions.."
