Which workshop?

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 evening or weekend workshops will probably suit you. If you’re a MUM (Multi-skilled Unpaid Miracle worker) or a lucky retiree, maybe our weekday workshops 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.

We run WomenzShed between our other work and family commitments so usually set the schedule of upcoming workshops during school holidays and run them during school terms.  When time allows, we also run pop-up workshops such as our ‘Summer School’ specials.  ​If we don’t have anything to suit your needs right now, follow us on our social media or subscribe to our newsletter for news of more upcoming workshops.
