WoW van

Our Workshop on Wheels (WoW van) will be back out on the road in the Spring, ready to offer free skills sessions to local community groups, thanks to a generous donation from the Mason Charitable Foundation.

The van is equipped with workbenches and tools so we can provide short workshops anywhere in Hastings and Rother.

We have helped community groups undertake their own projects such as restoring benches in a community garden, making raised beds or decorating.

We can also provide a short course for members of your community group. The Oasis Community Project based at Ore Community Centre, for example, used their time with the WoW van to learn furniture restoration.

Visit the WoW van page.

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.
