HRRC offers women's carpentry series
The Home Repair Resource Center’s (HRRC) six-week, in-depth, carpentry and interior repairs series for women will start on Wednesday, June 13, and then meet each Wednesday through July 25, 7–9 p.m. (The class will not meet on July 4.) The course fee is $150. Financial aid may be available for women whose incomes qualify.
Women who enroll will build a model wall and spend successive weeks adding pieces to the wall, as they would in their own home, including ceramic tile and grout, drywall, flooring and paint. Participants will also learn how to repair their old windows, which will include fixing damaged screens, glass replacement, glazing and sash-cord repair. Hands-on experience with a circular saw, miter saw, cordless drill, spline tools, wet saw, tile cutter and many other tools will be the most exciting part of the experience.
Expert instructors will be on hand to answer questions and help participants learn the correct and safest ways to make their own repairs. The series is the perfect opportunity to get hands-on training in many of the repairs your home may need.
