Tiling Workshops

January 31 at 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

£60

Are you a woman who would like to feel more confident doing her own tiling projects around the house Then this is the workshop for you! In a relaxed and informal atmosphere – and in a small group of four like-minded women – I will guide you to do your own hands-on tiling.

During the afternoon you will learn:

which tools and materials you need
where to source them (at afforable prices)
how to prepare a base for laying tiles
how to tile (you will tile your own 1sqm patch)
how to grout
how to add a neat looking edge trim to your project
how to drill into tile
how to remove and replace a single broken tile
we will also cover more aesthetic issues, such as where to source more unusual, stylish, contemporary or ethnic tiles (so you are not reliant on the limited stock of Topps Tiles or B&Q) and we will go around critiquing different tiling jobs at the workshop venue (a 3-bed Victorian house)
we will talk about common mistakes and how to avoid them
and of course there will be time to answer any questions you may have.
The workshop will start at 1pm and last until about 5.30pm. All tools will be provided. Please wear comfortable, loose clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty.

There will be tea and biscuits as well. 🙂 And I am fully insured for this workshop, you will be reassured to know.

Tickets can be booked through Eventbrite:
