benchspace Bites – How to Hang a Shelf – Saturday Afternoon

This beginner class from our Bites Series aims to teach students How to Hang a Shelf.

Under the guidance of Woodwork tutor Elaine, participants will get hands on with the tools, and in small groups will get to try out the tools involved and hang a shelf, troubleshooting as they go.

If you would like to bring your own drill to get familiar with using it, please feel free.  If you don’t have your own drill, don’t worry - we have lots!

Materials are included in the cost of the workshop and no experience is necessary.
We are fully inclusive and all skill levels (Adult 18+) are welcome, however, please note that this course requires hand-eye coordination and the ability to follow precise instructions with regards to safety.

Here's what you'll Learn:
    • Begin by talking about different wall construction methods and materials that are typically used in housing in Ireland.
    • Go through a few tips and tricks to work out whether a wall is load bearing or whether it is more likely to be a stud partition.
    • Touch on older methods and newer technologies in the construction industry.
    • Look at multiple different fixings and talk about their pros and cons, and the benefit of using different methods for different materials.
    • Go through the practical steps of hanging a shelf, tips and tricks on how to accurately mark when to place your chosen fixings, the easiest order in which to undertake the process, and pitfalls to try and avoid.
Where to Go: This class is held in our B1b unit located at Eircode T12 KRH7.
Here's what to Wear:
Avoid wearing loose clothing and jewellery and don’t forget to tie back long hair. Closed toe shoes are required on all of our workshop floors.
