Bricklaying DIY courses differ from one provider to another however most start from the basic/foundation level. It is hard physical work but the bricklaying trade is one of the best types of work for people who are physically able and strong, love being active and enjoy being in the building trade. Your quality brick craft will also be part of the landscape for a very long time and is an integral part of what makes a structure or building, resilient, sturdy and quite often, a work of art. Just look all around you and architectural history will prove this right.
Due to the hands-on nature of bricklaying, the bricklaying DIY course is entirely practical and onsite with a great amount of knowledge transferred so that the student will be able to competently perform basic and safe bricklaying work. Some of the bricklaying works you may learn to do could include: a pillar, a cavity wall, a corner and perhaps a pier.
Most learning providers will provide tools and materials but you will be required to wear suitable clothing and protective footwear (preferably steel toed), which is compulsory.
