Description

Introduction to car mechanics and maintenance for women

Have you ever wanted to fix your own car? Have you felt you couldn’t ask questions about basic mechanics? Well this is the workshop for you!

Over four weeks you will be guided through the fundamentals of buying, owning and maintaining a car by trained mechanic, Petra Ohrt.

With no prior knowledge or experience necessary, this course will demystify car engines and general operation, and introduce the important tricks and tools of the mechanics trade to encourage women to be more proactive in learning about and fixing and maintaining their own cars.

Women often feel there aren’t opportunities to learn about basic mechanics and the workings of cars and this workshop aims to provide a safe, supportive and encouraging environment to empower women to take more control over the things they use and value daily

Over four x 3hr sessions, participants will be guided through a number of practical issues to identify common problems, with solutions that can be applied to most cars, vans and trucks. These are issues that all car owners, or prospective drivers will face at some point in their driving life.

Come for individual sessions or book in for the whole program.
