The world of power tools can seem intimidating for women – but it shouldn’t be! AARCH believes strongly in empowering women to safely and confidently build and wield personal and professional DIY skills. 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, learn from a professional how to safely and effectively use and get the most 0ut of the most critical power tools. 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 and owner of AG Construction. The workshop will begin at 9 AM and ends around 3 PM.
This workshop requires pre-registration is first-come, first-served. The fee will cover the cost of materials and use of power tools.
Please note that this workshop will be limited to 10 women.
