DIY & Home Maintenance Workshops

Are you frustrated by having to wait for those little pesky jobs to be done in your home and garden by someone else? Do you find yourself often paying over the odds for having those annoying bits fixed? Would you like to feel more independent in this area of your life?

Worry no more! I am here to help you discover or develop your DIY in the home skills.

No previous DIY experience needed at all. Ideal for complete beginners of for those who have dabbled with bits of DIY already but would like to expand on some skills.

I would be delighted to welcome you to one of my friendly and welcoming one day workshops at one of my venues in Lancashire, Cheshire or Greater Manchester on a date to suit you.

Kind words from one of my attendees...

“Such a fantastic course! It is really informative and we covered so many basics including DIY repairs, basic plumbing and electricals and painting and decorating. I feel much more confident having a go at these jobs at home now rather than paying money to get someone external in. Jo is really knowledgeable and friendly and the whole day felt a very welcoming safe space which I was grateful for. Highly recommend!”

Please don’t worry if you are a complete novice! I will start from the beginning and explain all about the tools and techniques to with some invaluable tips from my own experience.

Alternatively if you have dabbled a little in the world of DIY already, but want to develop your skills, then this is the course for you. The numbers are kept small (6 to 8) to allow for one-to-one instruction for much of the time during the day.

Each workshop will run from 10am to 3pm with lunch break and plenty of coffee/tea/cake in between – Mum’s delicious homemade cream scones and gorgeous cakes are becoming rather renowned among workshop attendees!

Everything you will need for the workshop is included in the price and will be provided.
