This course is designed for both carpentry novices who want to break the ice using power tools, as well as women who have some carpentry experience but want to increase their confidence and knowledge base. The skills we will be learning will leave you with a feeling of empowerment to approach and build the projects that have inspired you to learn this craft. Over the span of three days we will cover the basics of tool safety and operation, how to read and create carpentry plans, hands-on building, learn creative problem solving, talk about workspace setup and essential tools for your home shop, and more.
To develop your skills we will build a small outhouse for a bucket compost toilet and yoni steam boxes that will be yours to take home. These projects will empower you with the basics to build a small structure you could tailor for your needs as well as smaller projects like drawers, shelves, toy box, etc. Throughout the weekend we will be combining learning opportunities through lecture format as well as hands-on instruction.
Childcare- Childcare is included in the costs of the workshop. We provide a family friendly environment and space for mothers to come learn new skills.
