Power Tools 101 for Women
Get geared up to do home renovations yourself! Power tools are often feared, but should not be. All it takes is some very simple instruction to get you well on your way to being able to do tons of DIY fixes and renos around your home.
In this 2.5 hour workshop, you will learn how to use all basic power tools safely, their common uses and you will leave with a beautiful triangular shelf.
This workshop is geared towards all those who identify as women or non-binary who have no experience with power tools or some experience but want to learn how to use them properly and safely.

We know it’s summer and it’s hot, but closed toe shoes are a must. Please also no baggy clothing and all hair must be tied back.
Tools used: drill, circular saw, jigsaw, mitre saw, and power sander.
