Introduction to Tiling – Backsplash / Walls
December 16, 2023
Time: 12:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Sliding Scale Price Range: $20 – $40
Additional Materials Fee: $15

***SOLD OUT***  Please email josh@westphillytools.org if you would like to be put on a waitlist in the event of any last-minute cancellations, or to be notified the next time we teach a tiling class.

Come learn how to install a tile wall or backsplash on our Tiny Model House. Our resident expert will walk you through the steps of how to install subway tiles on a drywall surface, from buttering the backs to grouting the seams, along with a few pro tips on how to make wet work more comfortable in cold weather (note that, although our classroom area is not climate-controlled, we will rustle up a space heater or two to help make it a bit cozier).

The cost of this class is based on a sliding scale between $35 – $55, including a $15 fee for materials.

NOTE: This is our final class of 2023. Check back next spring for more classes and hands-on workshops. Thanks!
