Hammertime Rainbow


Hammertime Rainbow provides a safe place to build confidence with tools. It is a practical and hands on course for those wanting to learn how to use hand and power tools safely and gain an introduction to timber work. Participants will work on a small timber project first and learn basic skills to start on their own project. This is a great course to introduce one to tool use and could lead to career pathways in a trade.
