Building a relationship.

Doing DIY may not be most people's idea of a romantic activity, but it could be when coupled with a pre-Valentine's weekend away learning the nuts and bolts of how to wield a hammer and nails correctly.

Chix&Mortar is a DIY course being held in London this Saturday and Sunday (Feb 5 & 6) designed for couples as well as men and women, teaching them everything from tiling, wallpapering and painting techniques to general household maintenance, using and other tricks of the trade.

Participants will be guided by a team of experts, led by Jason Goodwin of ITV's 60 Minute Makeover, This Morning and Five Live, at the event, which is being held at Thistleworth Tennis Club in Osterley, West London.

It costs pounds 189 for two days but there is an option of a one-day course for pounds 99. Overalls, course notes, refreshments and builders' tea are all provided.

Birmingham Post readers are entitled to a 30 per cent discount and can book by emailing the booking form on the website,, or by calling Collette at 07771 886790. Payment can be made on the day by cheque and you must quote BPost.
