The world’s largest home improvement retailer offers FREE weekly workshops on a variety of DIY repair topics.

Here’s what you need to know.

How to Take Advantage of The Home Depot’s Free Workshops

The Home Depot offers free workshops at each of its more than 2,000 locations across the U.S., Canada, China and Mexico.

They take place every week on Saturday mornings and Sunday afternoons.

Upcoming workshops are consistent across locations and include outdoor lighting, interior painting and drywall repair, ceiling fan installation, faucet installation and building an outdoor wooden doormat.

Supplies aren’t included, but instruction is FREE. How cool is that?

The retailer also has classes targeted at women and kids — like classes on how to build a DIY vegetable stand, and how to build a butterfly house, respectively.

Even if you don’t have any home projects coming up, the free kids’ workshops (they get to keep their projects!) seem like a fun screen-free activity.

Click here to find out which workshops are coming up — and, if none of them sound appealing, here are a bunch of other ways to learn DIY home improvements for free.
