Our Half-Day DIY confidence-building introduction to using Drills.

We feel that this is one of our most DIY-confidence-building courses. It follows on from the skills gained in our Nailing it! DIY Fundamentals workshop.

Many people are worried about using a drill. They are powerful DIY tools, and need to be treated with respect. However, they are also very useful, 7 essential for many projects.

There is also a wide range of different types, sizes & weights of drill, designed for different uses. It can be very confusing.

The Drill down into Drilling DIY workshops aims to remove all that confusion. We will introduce you to a number of different drills, suitable for DIY projects. We will show you how to use them safely and effectively.

You will have plenty of opportunity to practise with them. Its important that you find the types of drill that you feel confident with, so that you can use them safely in DIY projects at home.

By the end of the course you will feel confident to go home and start using a Drill in your own DIY projects.

In this hands-on DIY course, we will cover all these exciting topics:

Choosing the right Drill for the project

Understanding different types of material, and how they need to be treated.

Knowing where not to drill

Using drills safely & effectively

The list goes on......

At the end of the day, you will have tried out many different types and makes of drill. You will know how to select the right drill bit and fixing for your DIY project. Above all, your confidence will have grown enormously so that you can go home and start tackling your own DIY projects.

If you already have your own drill at home, and want to bring it with you to the course, so that you can build your confidence with using it, please feel free to bring it with you.

Level: Beginner
