Handy People

A new six-week course that will give you the skills you need to begin a creative career.

**We have a handful of places left for the next course starting Monday, March 7th for 6 weeks**

What will the sessions cover?

By the end of the 6 weeks you will have up-cycled a piece of furniture to your own unique design. In the first 3 weeks you’ll develop the skills and different techniques you need on smaller projects such as outdoor pots which will mean you’re confident and skilled up :). Then from week 4 you’ll apply these skills  and knowledge to pre-loved furniture to create a unique piece. Your experienced tutor will guide you through each stage so that you feel confident and able to take the skills away to use independently.

You’ll meet a group of like-minded people, and you’ll have volunteer opportunities at The Vale to widen your experience if you’d like to  contribute to exciting  live projects delivered from The Vale.

Where and when?

All sessions will take place at The Vale. OL5 9JL

The first practical session for this course is Monday March 7th at 10am – 2pm.

The course will run every Monday for 6 weeks with the final session taking place on April 11th.
