Weston women get to grips with wallpapering
WESTON College has launched a unique house makeover diploma focused on women, following a successful taster day at the Construction and Engineering Centre of Excellence (CECE).
A dozen women got to grips with the intricacies of pasting and wallpapering and how to fill-in damaged areas.
IT teacher, Sam Mabberley, 45, of Earlham Grove, said: “This is a great course for working mums. I’m married to a painter and decorator but can’t get him to do DIY at home so I want to learn rather than pay someone else.
“I’ve enjoyed the taster day and would like to do the longer course.”
The new Level 1 course will allow women to gain a qualification and while the course is aimed at women who are interested in DIY, men can also enrol.
