The workshop is presented by Pistons and Pixie Dust, a mobile automotive repair service owned and staffed by women. Rene’s Executive Automotive Appearance will host the workshop on March 18, 2018.
Pistons and Pixie Dust’s website offers their services to women who want either maintenance done on their cars, pre-purchase automobile inspections, pre-sale inspection or to simply learn more about their own vehicles.
“Take control of your ride and save money by becoming a more educated vehicle owner,” the event advertises. “Learn how to not be taken advantage of by mechanics.”
Participants are asked to wear closed-toed shoes and clothes that they are willing to get dirty. Long hair must be tied back and no dangly jewelry can be worn during the hands-on portion of class, according to an event description.
Hosts will provide rubber gloves, rags and tools but women are encouraged to bring their own.
“All classes are taught by women, for women and come with a no-mansplaining guarantee,” the event description reads. “All ages and all skill levels are encouraged to attend.”
Faye Hadley, owner of Pistons and Pixie Dust, says for every full-paying customer she is able to provide free or heavily discounted services to economically disadvantaged women, single moms in need and victims of sexual abuse.
