This fun, hands-on workshop will equip you with a better understanding of how your home works, the confidence to repair many common problems, and the skills to tackle a multitude of projects. Absolutely no experience necessary!

Three experienced, patient tradespeople – a union electrician, a general contractor, and a retired union carpenter – have teamed up to teach this one-of-a-kind workshop. Participants will be working in small groups with plenty of individual attention and practice that will leave you ready to release your inner handy-worker on your own projects and repairs.

The workshop will focus on three main areas:

Take the Power
Basic electricity, basic safety
Change a wall outlet
Troubleshoot and fix a lamp or light fixture

Plumbing 101
Unclog a stopped-up drain
How a toilet works and how to fix it
Repair a dripping faucet

Up Against the Wall
Fix and patch cracks, dings and holes in walls
Hanging and attaching how-to for any type of wall

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
