PVC Celebrates Ten Years

DIY Courses for everyone!

If you want to learn how to plaster, or are desperate to decorate your front room, sign up to one of our exciting DIY taster sessions. 

We have taster sessions in plastering, painting and decorating, joinery and bricklaying. You don't have to have experience, just book on to a taster session with one of our experienced tutors and build your skills. 

We will be posting new dates for sessions later this year. Please check back here soon.
