Learn to love

Our Decorating Skills course starts on 15th February, and Advanced Carpentry on 14th.  You may not meet your Valentine at the HFS workshop but we reckon we can teach you how to love decorating!

With fantastic wallpapers donated by Brewers and tools from Trade Paints, the workshop is well-stocked.  Tutor Ron can’t wait to share his tips and tricks for getting a perfect finish when you decorate a room.  Choosing the right tools for the job, preparing walls and surfaces for decoration including painting and wallpapering.  Learn how to hang paper, match patterns, trim edges, and work around objects like sockets and light switches.

The course runs for 4 weeks at our Bexhill workshop.
