Local Business Women Repair Zone Launches Hands-On Online Workshops

Wednesday, July 1, 2020

Women Repair Zone, a local Chattanooga business where women instructors teach women DIY home repair, home improvement and auto maintenance skills, has launched online workshops that continue to "empower women to do their own repairs so they can save money, build confidence and increase independence." 

With hands-on workshops such as Basic Masonry Repairs, women will do the repairs at their homes as the instructor guides them through the steps, with the opportunity to ask questions live throughout the workshop. Other upcoming workshops are Creating a Welcome Sign and Planter out of wood and Getting Your Home Ready to Sell, which is a lecture-based workshop with live questions. Additional workshops will be announced soon. 

“I was really bummed when workshops had to be canceled due to COVID-19, but Women Repair Zone wasn't going to let that stop them," said customer Laura N. from Georgia. "They've developed a series of online workshops to keep the tremendous spirit going and I immediately signed up for four workshops. These new online workshops are just another example of how Women Repair Zone strives for excellence in creating opportunities for women to learn new skills, gain confidence, and enhance their creativity. They think of everything to make a session productive, take out the guesswork and allow you to have the optimum learning experience. I can't wait for the next series of online workshops." 

Officials said, "In addition to taking a workshop to learn a new skill, Women Repair Zone workshops make great gifts. Workshops can be purchased at www.womenrepairzone.com. The newsletter is a great way to keep up with all the workshops and helpful tips."
