So far this December we have been teaching bricklaying, plumbing, tiling and plastering. We start again on Monday morning swapping bricklaying for carpentry and joinery. We only have 3 places remaining this year so if you fancy jumping on a last minute course give the centre a call Monday morning. Below are a selection of photos taken over the past week and a half.
On the bricklaying course you will learn trowel skills and build a half brick wall and a block wall. Advanced bricklaying techniques such as arches and practice on a range of different brickwork bonds such as garden wall bonds are also covered. The plastering course will cover boarding up of walls and ceilings, skimming over existing plaster and also onto plaster board. You wall also plasterboard onto block work wall using board fix ‘dot and dab’ plus backing plaster method. We will also repair holes in walls and learn how to patch repair plasterwork and feather in large areas.
The plumbing course briefly covers plumbing in bathrooms, kitchens and radiators systems as well as fault finding and repair from toilet cisterns to central heating.
The tiling course starts off with you tiling a basic kitchen, then around a window half height with trims to be mitred. Then moving onto tiling a bathrooms shower area above a bath and then tiling a floor with obstacles such as a pedestal to cut tiles around along with a boxing in and doorway architraves.
