About the course
Picking up a brush and painting a room can seem like an easy task. But doing it properly, with a sharp finish which will stand the test of time, takes a bit more thought and consideration than you may think.
During this module you’ll learn all about how important it is to prepare your surfaces, and how to do this. We will show you what tools we would recommend you use, different types of paint and a step by step guide to getting the best results on a range of surfaces for walls, ceilings, doors and windows.
A little bit of theory and a lot of practical will get you honing your skills on our walls and learning from your mistakes in our workshop so that you are ready to apply your new skills to an exacting standard in your own home.
Once you do this basic course you will have the confidence to transform your home yourself and perhaps earn some money decorating.

“I had tackled some plumbing jobs in the past but did not have a great deal of confidence until I attended the How To plumbing course. It was very well structured and Dave explained all of the basics and some more. It was a mixture of teaching and doing…I successfully plumbed in a kitchen sink!! ”
“Incredible! I have learnt so much with Justin and the team. I feel confident to tackle the jobs and projects I’ve been putting off. Thank you!”

“I loved my time at How to Basically this morning. Dave was such a calm and reassuring tutor.
The lesson was the perfect balance between theory and practical and I really do feel more confident that when I get a drill in my hands, I can actually be useful!”
