Intensive Bricklaying Courses

"The practical side was the biggest part of the bricklaying course and the most useful part. Learning how to do bricklaying basics and the techniques of using the essential tools. The bricklaying course was as advertised (5 day intensive). The staff was friendly and helpful. The instructor was a very experienced bricklayer and was always there to monitor, guide and help."

Michael from Leamington Spa, Warwickshire

"Learning to lay bricks. It was tailored perfectly for beginners. Gave me confidence to try projects at home. Although a beginner I feel I learnt an enormous about bricklaying in general and also the tutor answered all my general queries and his demonstrations were practical and easy to understand, i.e. dead man corners, use of lintels etc."

Catherine from Coventry, West Midlands
