I did the beginners basic DIY course and as a complete beginner I really appreciated Caroline's clear and patient teaching methods. She really went back to basics and gave some great tips on tools to purchase and techniques to help with basic household DIY. I am looking forward to signing up for some of the other courses and building up my knowledge.

I absolutely loved the ‘Nailing It’ course. At the age of 60 I was finally shown how to hammer, saw and drill effectively. It was a revelation and truly empowering- I had just assumed I was no good at this sort of thing. And taking out a screw with an electric screwdriver was unexpectedly thrilling! I’ll definitely be signing up for more classes

I attended the Nailing it! workshop looking to gain some confidence with attempting small projects at home. Caroline demystified a lot of things for me and I went to B&Q the following day armed with knowledge! Will be back to learn about plumbing.

My friend and I took the DIY - Nailing It! course for beginners, which was a really great introduction to the basics of DIY! From explaining the different types of screwdrivers to showing us how to hand saw and drill holes, Caroline was very friendly and answered all our questions patiently. I highly recommend booking in with bePractical - and to bring a jumper as the workshop is quite cold :)
Reply from bePractical Ltd 2024.05.18
Thanks Nora. Glad you both enjoyed the course, even though you are clearly already a confident DIYer. Sorry about the temperature of the workshop - we really hope that, once the Council's building work has finished, we will be a bit warmer. We will be a haven in hot summer weather

I attended the BePractical Nailing It! Workshop to learn the fundamentals of DIY. I learnt so much from Caroline and feel so much more confident to do some DIY, putting the skills I learnt into practice. I also feel like I know enough that I can go into a DIY store and not feel totally bamboozled - I know what to get/ask for! My partner also came with me and has gone from having absolutely no interest in DIY to wanting to do a project for fun because he enjoyed it so much! Caroline is a fantastic teacher, making us all feel included, and her enthusiasm comes through making the course engaging and fun. Thanks so much! I highly recommend this course and BePractical - 5 stars!

I attended the Nailing It Beginner's DIY course yesterday and really enjoyed it. It gave me confidence in understanding which tools I really need and which ones I can now get rid of from the collection I have as well as understanding how to hammer, drill and saw. Thank you Caroline for such an interesting morning.

I recently attended two classes as I was fed up with not feeling confident enough to try simple DIY tasks myself. I booked onto 'Nailing it' and 'Drill down into drilling'. Caroline was really patient,informative and helpful and I came away ready to start tackling these jobs myself. I will definitely be booking onto the next class.

That's lovely to hear Mandy. Looking forward to seeing you on the next course, and hearing all about your DIY Jobs list

What a great training session💯I did Nailing it! Back to basics - hammer-screwdrivers, screws, sawing, drills-Drills -what does a hammer drill do, what are the settings . What do I consider buying? What do I need to get started? I had hands on experience, great to practice and learn techniques that made using the tools efficiently. It’s not brute strength, it really is technique! Very inclusive and a safe space to ask those questions ✅ I learned what to use, when to use, why to use …and also practiced how to use. What do I need? I feel very confident in tackling my DIY. Caroline has many years of experience and uses her real life experiences for the training. Highly recommend this training as a great starting point and save money by DIY instead of paying for a handy person- DIY don’t do that😁

Thank you Tracey. What lovely feedback. Really glad that you enjoyed the course and that you have gone away feeling more confident. That's music to my ears. Hope to see you again soon

I attended the 'Nailing It' beginners DIY course, which was excellent. Really informative, just the right balance of knowledge-sharing and practical hands-on learning. Everything was very friendly and non-intimidating! I feel that I know so much more now, and have booked on to the follow-up course.

I've now been to two bePractical courses - the beginner's plumbing and the 'Nailing It' DIY course. I've learnt so much in just a few hours and it's enabled me to drill to put up my own pictures, shown me how to use different tools for the right jobs and really boosted my confidence in my ability to be able to do basic jobs around the house. The courses are suitable for total beginners like me and then you can move on to the next level courses. Many of them are just half a day and I guarantee you'll be rushing home to try out your skills!

I would just like to say a massive thank you to Caroline and especially Simon for giving me the opportunity to attend their plumbing courses. I need to update some of my radiators at home and after receiving several extortionate quotes from plumbers came across these courses and thought, what have I got to lose by doing the course. The very least I will have learnt enough to be able to talk to plumbers with some degree of knowledge I thought. However, the course was so hands on that I’m confident about replacing the radiators myself plus have future knowledge of pipework to be able to maintain or repair any future problems I have, or at least have a go. Would thoroughly recommend these courses to anyone.
