Building tutorials for every woman

Power Tools is a series of household DIY videos made by women, for women.

These fun, approachable and concise videos give instructions on basic DIY tasks such as changing a lightbulb, smashing a window, painting a wall and using a drill.

The Power Tools video series was created by the arts and social justice project Idle Women, with LUCA and Charmian Griffin. It was developed over three years with women local to St Helens, campaigners, activists and women in trade.

14 short videos, duration, 2019

Shown as part of Hippo Campus; Where We Learn a group exhibition featuring works from the Arts Council Collection that explores alternative schooling, peer-to-peer learning and self-education.
