In this fun, hands-on workshop you'll come away 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!

Saturday, July 23rd, 11am - 3pm
New Freeway Hall, 5018 Rainier Ave S

$40 fee includes coffee, tea and bagels

Class size is limited to 15 — advance registration and payment is required

We'll focus on three main areas:

  • 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

Maria Martinez is a handywoman indeed (ten.knilhtrae|namowydnah#ten.knilhtrae|namowydnah)‚Äč, who owns her own small business here in Seattle, doing home and garden maintenance and repair. Kathleen Merrigan is a retired City Light electrical worker and building manager of New Freeway Hall. And Sukey Wolf spent many years in the Building Maintenance and Repair Department for Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART).

We'll 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.

Funds raised will benefit the Freedom Socialist newspaper's $80,000 fund drive.
