We know how different life can be for different women. Whether you're currently juggling an endless list of responsibilities, needing to do something just for yourself, looking to learn a new skill, or simply wanting to be part of a group of like-minded women, that's why we're working towards offering different workshops to suit a range of life-stages, interests and commitments.
If you work full-time our Saturday workshops will probably suit you. If you're a MUM (Multi-skilled Unpaid Miracle worker) or a lucky retiree, maybe Thursdays will be better. Either way, our pace of instruction and support aims to give everyone the confidence needed to use a wide range of woodworking hand-tools, power-tools and machinery to make, create, fix and repair.
If we don't have anything to suit your needs right now, do follow us on our social media or subscribe to our newsletter for news of more upcoming workshops.

"The level and style of instruction - a really lovely way of teaching - it was detailed enough, and covered what it needed to in a short enough time that we could stay focused. The repetition was great so that I could get comfortable with tools that scared me. It was clever to give us basic wood to work with so that we could relax about trying things out. I appreciated that we were encouraged to take things apart and reassemble them, ie tools and changing out blades etc and trying new hand tools. Having a teacher and support teacher was great too"

"I thoroughly enjoyed working with the facilitators and learned so much about correct use of tools. Now I understand grinders, routers and the different saws. Many useful measuring tips, etc, along the way. I can now sharpen my plane blades correctly and set the blade on the skill saw. All hit and miss before. Thank you for a fun, valuable course. Look forward to further courses."

"This workshop delivered everything I hoped for, thanks to the energetic, supportive, fun and knowledgeable crew. It was delivered in a very down to earth way, with something for everyone. The small group learning was a perfect way to pick up skills and get to know people. I left every session smiling!"
