Women tired of waiting for men to fulfil their home renovation needs will soon have the chance to learn how to do it themselves.

Bunnings Warehouse Hawera is holding a free ladies-only DIY night next month to encourage women to get hands-on with power tools.

Programme organiser Jess Huqsar said DIY simply wasn't a man-only realm any more.

"These ladies won't have to wait for their men to show them how to get the job done, they will be able to show them," she said.

Mrs Huqsar said participants will learn how to use power tools, plan projects, take on a construction challenge and watch live demonstrations through a series of workshops which will cover common jobs around the house and garden.

Add in a few bubbles and nibbles and those women attending can expect a fun-filled night.

The night will be held on October 24.
