KCLC Sheds teacher David O'Dwyer wants young and old to take part in the furniture, building and woodworking courses on offer.

It’s never too late to improve your skills, or learn some new ones.

Kyabram Community Learning Centre is hoping Kyabram residents will take on board the idea of continual learning as the centre unveils two brand-new building courses.

Aspiring builders, or those simply wanting to improve their handyman knowledge, can now enroll in an Introduction to Building course, which will run for eight weeks, with an Introduction to Canvas Work course set to be run in fourth term.

The new courses compliment the KCLC Shed’s already available courses, which includes a Certificate 2 in Furniture Making and Introduction to Furniture Restoration short course.
