The centre holds the Self Build Course every couple of months which is specially designed for keen self builders. Delivered over 3 days (Saturday - Monday), the course covers 11 topics in total and the informal workshops make use of the superb practical exhibits available in the centre to provide attendees with a level of knowledge which guarantees their projects will go more smoothly.

It is really ideal for those who are looking to embark or indeed have already started a self build or renovation project as it will give you a real grounding and knowledge of each aspect of self building.
