The Studio@620 wants to help you become more "Handy"! Home repair pros Davis Brooks and Maggie Romigh will teach a series of hands-on classes designed to give women the knowledge and confidence to tackle home repair and maintenance.
How often do leaks and squeaks and ceiling fans in boxes languish, while you wait for someone else to do it? Most projects are ones you can tackle yourself, with the right tools and an understanding of how things work.
Our Women’s Work classes will give women a safe environment to try things out and learn, and get past stereotypes that women can’t use tools. We aim for confidence, camaraderie, fun and hands-on learning.
Learn how to:
- Take care of small problems before they turn into big ones
- Care for and improve your home
- Make furniture and appliances last longer
- Buy an older, less-expensive home that needs some work
- Save money
- Know when to call in a professional, and know what you’re talking about when you negotiate with contractors.
Classes are held once a month on a Saturday morning from 10 am to noon at The Studio@620, and include time for Q&A about your real-life problems. Class space is limited, so please register in advance. Wear comfortable clothes and closed-toe shoes and bring your favorite pair of work gloves.
