How to book a block of classes online

You can now book online for the next block of classes.

  • To book, go to list-of-classes and find the class you want to book
  • You can only pay online in the first 3 weeks of the block – if you’re attending 7 or fewer classes in the block, it will be cheaper for you to pay weekly than to pay for a block
  • You can still pay for a block, or weekly, direct to the teacher
  • Remember, to attend regularly you should be a member of MDIY
  • We’ve added a downloadable pdf timetable to the classes page, for quick reference
Find your class, and click on it to go to the booking page

Payment options

We use PayPal to process our online transactions, however you do not need to have a PayPal account to pay.

You can pay using any credit or debit card.

  • When you are redirected to the PayPal page, choose the option “Checkout as a Guest”
  • PayPal will then ask for your card details, to process the payment on our behalf

We chose to use PayPal as the most straightforward way for our members to pay securely.

If you prefer not to pay online that’s fine – you can still book offline and pay with cheque or cash.

Choose “Check Out as a Guest” to pay with any credit or debit card.
