Cardiff Transition spawns new skills collective

A new grass roots skills initiative has sprung from Cardiff Transition and is gearing up to reskill communities through courses and informal expertise sharing to improve local resilience.


HANDS ON is the new group set up with the aim of reintroducing a range of essential skills which will equip us to be more self reliant and resourceful in an uncertain future. Our network provides workshops and courses taught by the leading experts as well as opportunities to share skills more informally. HANDS ON can be contacted via 029 20229336 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. As well as the above, HANDS ON is offering a range of courses and workshops including: DIY Wind Turbine, Eco Building, Knitting, Bicycle Maintenance and Practical Gardening. We are also looking to expand our network of trainers so if you train in specific skills and are interested in joining us then please contact us. We meet regularly and are in the process of setting ourselves up more formally. For more info please click on this link:
