REVIEWS

"Would highly recommend this course for any novice DIYers out there or people just wanting more knowledge and skills in the fundamentals of DIY. David, the course leader, was incredibly knowledgeable and engaging, with a good sense of humour which added additional fun and comfort to the course. Set in the beautiful grounds of his home, in his self built workshop, David tailored the class to the groups needs and desires and provided guidance and knowledge for personal projects to ensure we completed them with the correct tools and newly found confidence. Thanks for a great day David "
