Keep What You Make
On the course you will make at least the following:
- a 1200mm long vanity top with integrated basin (RRP $2290)
- a 1200mm reinforced table top / bench top (RRP $720)
- a vessel basin (RRP $660)
All of these are yours to keep if you wish.
- That is $3670 of finished products as well as the knowledge to keep making more high quality GFRC.
- This is a hands-on course with a couple of hours practical at the start of each day.
Who is the course for?
Everyone is welcome and we have enjoyed the company of students from the ages of 21 to 77, guys and gals from across Australia and from overseas.
If you’re from out of town why not stay an extra few days and explore Fremantle and beautiful Western Australia.
What skills and gear do I need?
We provide everything, just wear clothes that you don’t mind getting concrete on. If you have PPE (glasses, muffs and mask) please bring them. We can supply these items but due to Covid we will have to then dispose of them after only 2.5 days use.
You will be using battery powered drills/drivers so some knowledge of these is handy.
Some mixing is done with a large hand held cement mixer. Most people have no problem with the weight of this.
