Christmas DIY Energy Efficiency Workshop

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

Dec 2, 2012

By popular demand, Edinburgh World Heritage and Greenworks will be running one last DIY energy efficiency workshop before Christmas. This will be the last chance to attend these hugely popular courses.

Don’t miss this date!

  • “Draught-proofing Your Home, Sash & Case Windows and Repairing Shutters” - Sunday 2 December, 2pm till 5pm

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

Feedback from 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."

Matt: “I really enjoyed the session and learnt a lot. We've recently installed draught proofing tape around the front door which is making a huge difference already”.

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.
