DIY Energy Efficiency Workshops

EWH offers free workshops on how to winter-proof your home.

Oct 2, 2012

For the second year in a row Edinburgh World Heritage is partnering with Greenworks in running these hugely popular courses.

The courses are aimed at someone new to DIY or saving energy in the home. We look at the basic uses of energy in the home and what practical actions can be made to reduce fuel bills and heat loss at home. Each hands-on workshop focuses on key skills and tools, and demonstrates
how to get the best results. A very enjoyable way to learn useful skills.

The courses are held at Greenworks in Leith, an environmental charity that helps people learn new skills by providing the expertise, materials, tools and space.

Don’t miss these dates!

  • Draught-proofing your home - Saturday 13 October, 2pm till 5pm
  • Sash & Case windows and Repairing shutters - Sunday 14 October, 2pm till 5pm
  • Self energy audit and loft insulation - Sunday 28 October, 2pm till 5pm

All workshops are free of charge, but places are limited. To book your place in advance, please contact Chiara Ronchini at info@ewht.org.uk or call 0131 220 7720.

Feedback from last year’s participants:

Rebecca: "I loved your workshops, learned a huge amount and have already started working on getting my shutters sorted. Credit to Greenworks too as Simon is a great tutor and the laid back atmosphere and small groups were especially beneficial. Are you going to run more? I have a friend that would love to come."

Andy: "Thank you for the workshop on Saturday, which was useful and got me thinking on a few ways to sort my flat. With best wishes and thanks again."

Melanie: "It was very useful and I am glad I learned more than just to clean and how to open my windows. Thanks for letting me know about them."
