What you'll learn in this diy class:

Come make friends, have fun and empower yourself with basic DIY skills! No more feeling intimidated walking into Home Depot or pulling up TaskRabbit every time you need a fix--do it yourself!

Join us for a fun and empowering 10-class series taught by licensed Home Improvement contractor Taerra Pence. Leave feeling confident in your ability to tackle any basic DIY project—and save thousands in handyman costs!

What You'll learn:
  • Get comfortable using basic tools and drilling - Learn about the four basic tools every woman needs in her toolbox, plus get started with drilling basics.
  • Hanging lightweight pictures and decorations - Learn how to hang lightweight objects like pictures, Christmas lights, coat hooks, and cute sh*t you find on Etsy.
  • Hanging curtains and blinds - Learn how to correctly measure (and avoid a common mistake!), buy the right products, and install them yourself!
  • Hanging heavy objects - Learn to hang a big mirror, painting, or shelf into plaster, drywall or concrete.
  • Patching holes - After our classes on drilling holes, we obviously need one on patching them. Learn how to fix accidental holes and leave your apartment, and your security deposit, in tact.
  • Plumbing basics - Learn how to fix the flow and “find the diamond,” plus an intro to basic leaks.
  • Caulking - Water, water everywhere is...not good. Learn about the (very important!) difference between the two kinds of caulk, and how to use them.
  • IKEA: I see you and I raise you - What’s the best way to put together IKEA and other DIY furniture? Let’s learn together!
  • Decorating Basics: lighting, temporary wallpaper and backsplash - These apartment decorating hacks will allow you to dress up your space at minimal cost and effort.
  • Decorating, Part 2: Decorative trim and making the sad fab - Learn about the many uses of decorative trim, and practice using it by dressing up our IKEA pieces.
Finally, we’ll review what we’ve learned and toast our new skills!
