Absolute Beginners Powertool Workshop with The Salvage Sister

Come to Brighton for the day and enjoy a power tool workshop class where you’ll learn how to use a range of power tools safely!

There is nothing more freeing than being completely independent – and that starts with my Beginners Powertool Workshop.

You’ll watch them in action, learn what the various switches, buttons and devices on the machine do.

You’ll also gain knowledge about buying powertools – what to look for, what to avoid & which ones I adore!

You’ll be shown safe use of the power tools before trying them all out while I guide you.

When you feel confident you can practice cutting, drilling and sanding wood with electric saws, drills and sanders.

The Salvage Sister is a pro and teach you everything you need to know about power tools so you can start growing your collection of useful items and become a savvy DIYer in your own home.

You won’t feel like a beginner with power-tools for long!

    Thanks Charis for a fantastic Power Tools session today. You reignited my love of wood & I can’t wait to come along to another session. Girls can use tools! Jacquie Trott x — with Vanessa Goldsmith.

    Hi Charis
    Thank you for the Beginner’s Workshop on Saturday. It was absolutely brilliant and so full of information and practical advice to find our way around a surprising amount of power tools in the time. It was a wonderful, relaxed and informal class which was also a lot of fun. I would definitely be interested in taking part in further classes and would highly recommend them to others.

    I attended the Absolute Beginners Power Tools Workshop as a, well, absolute beginner and left a lot more confident, more empowered and very inspired by what I could now do with power tools. Charis, it’s so lovely and really helped me get over to my anxiety of using big power tools, especially saws! Her enthusiasm is infectious and she’s very understanding. Managed to get my hands on a big range of tools in a short amount of time (3 hours!) and I would feel happy to use them again on my own. Would absolutely recommend this workshop or any of her workshops, and I can’t wait to visit her again. Thanks Charis!! – Trip Advisor Reviewed by JRA247

    Happy New Year Charis.
    I attended your ‘Tools for beginners’ in the summer and meant to write a review ages ago as I thoroughly enjoyed the course and it gave me the knowledge and confidence to make several items for my allotment so thank you.
    I went to Charis,’Tools for Beginners’ last year. The course gave me the confidence to make several wood structures for my allotment. The course was really enjoyable full of information and practical advice. Charis has he ability to make the workshop a relaxed and fun experience. I would highly recommend this workshop and I am looking to take other course with Charis. Vanessa G

    Knowledge is Power!
    Charis gets you started immediately with drills, saws and much more giving important safety tips but also lots of interesting advice. She is so knowledgeable about her subject and passionate about what she does and how she can help others to learn and use those skills. The Absolute Beginners Power Tools course is an absolute must for anyone who wants to gain confidence in using these tools. TRIPADVISOR user – ‘Brighton_Ragazza’

    I aabsolutely loved this course. Charis was wonderful and really treated us well and was fun to be with as well as incredibly knowledgeable. She was never patronising and really left us practice with the tools in a very relaxed manner. I totally recommend this course to anyone who has ever wanted to use a powertool but too wary to try.
