FULL: Power Tools for Women Workshop

September 16, 2023 @ 9:00 am 3:00 pm

The world of power tools can seem intimidating for women – but it shouldn’t be! AARCH believes strongly in empowering women to build and wield personal and professional DIY skills safely and confidently. We are teaming up with regional contractor and construction firm owner Leisa Almekinder to explore the importance and uses of power tools exclusively for women. Through this workshop, attendees will learn from a professional how to use the most critical power tools safely and effectively. Participants will walk away from this experience with an expanded knowledge of how to use a range of power tools in DIY work.

This workshop is led by Leisa Almekinder, founder of AG Construction. The event will begin at 9 AM and ends at 3 PM.

The fee is $75 AARCH members and $85 non-members. This workshop requires pre-registration and is first come, first served. Please note that this workshop will be limited to around ten women and fills up quickly.

This project has been funded in part by a grant from the New York State Council on the Arts.
