Junior Handyman workshop
Let your young one pick up some handy skills when you sign him up for the Junior Handyman workshop, organised by the People’s Association and Home-Fix.

Children will learn about important safety techniques before embarking on projects, and be introduced to common hand tools, such as a hammer, screwdriver, and pliers and cutters.

They will also be taught how to use a cordless drill as they try their hands at a range of simple repair work, such as replacing a shower hose with Teflon tape, and, identifying bolts and common screw heads.
