Do you know if it is really like workshop where each partipant will do some handson work , or it will be more like a seminar ( just watch ) ?

However i have a small kid. if its more like seminar, i can bring my kid along .

You will need to ask. Some are watch and learn and some you can actually do some stuff. But the presence of a kid in either case will distract you and you will miss key things.

I have attended their basement reno and hardwood installation workshops.
It's pretty general, no hands on experiences.

..and many others will be distracted and miss key things if your young kid is like my young kid.

Ya, I didn't want to spell that out but its the truth. My 8 year old would probably want to participate. My 5 year old would distract everyone.

Some of those seminars are great, and some I have been bored watching. That goes for the home shows too when its pro presenters like Steve Maxwell, Baumler, Holmes, or any of the Cdn DIY crew. Everyone has a bad day.

I have never seen a bad Bob Villa workshop though.

I went to the hardwood floor and painting seminars at the HD in pickering. Both were great. The painting seminar had about 3 people in it and we asked all sorts of questions. You could try it out but was no need to get hands on with it really.

The hardwood floor seminar ended up being just me. A one on one session where he had floor laid out and I got to try laying it out myself and using the stabler to bang them in. It was great and worth the time.

I guess it varies from store to store though.
