Learn new skills and become more independent

If you are looking for a new project to take on, or if you’re in desperate need of skills to help you with repairs around the house, our DIY courses can help give you the ability and confidence to take on new projects.

Save yourself from future hassles

From learning how to maintain a bicycle to car servicing and care, we have plenty of ways you can learn to become more self-sufficient, catching problems before they become too big.

Gain confidence and skills in our relaxed and friendly learning environments. Whether you are brand new to our DIY courses and starting at the basics or a returning learner taking your skills to the next level, our passionate tutors will be on hand to guide you each week.

Learn to personalise and customise your possessions

DIY courses are a great choice for anyone looking to tackle various tasks and projects on their own. Alongside our vehicle maintenance courses, we offer courses for home improvements including introductions to Plumbing, Carpentry & Joinery, and Domestic Electrical repairs. Through our courses you can learn the key skills needed to avoid expensive call-outs.

If you’re in to fashion, you can learn to fix an item of clothing to stop it going to waste, or learn to create your own statement pieces from complex patterns.
