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, not only do we have small group sizes to create the space for personal interactions and support between both instructors and attendees, 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 in 2023.
