WOMEN MAKERS PROGRAMME
MAKE something beautiful and grow your confidence.
We found that women wanted to learn the skills with other women so we created these women only workshops.
7th November, Tuesday 7-9:30pm ( Evening class)
Intro to Woodworking – Bird box, £25 per person
This is a friendly and very popular beginners class in the WOMEN MAKERS PROGRAMME series specifically geared towards getting women acquainted with tools and basic woodwork skills. The project is run by Heal Earth enterprise based in Baltic creative, Liverpool in partnership with MAKE Liverpool
Why Women’s Only Woodwork?
Woodworking for Women improves creative self -care, grows confidence and innovation.
We offer learning skills and experience in more supportive and low-pressure atmosphere. And, once you get the basics, you can easily create fun projects yourself!
Our bodies are different, our backgrounds are likely different, and so we need a class just for ourselves! This class is intended to get ladies up-to-speed on basic building skills, working with wood, and using hand-tools as well as power-tools.
Join us for this hands on, skill-building, tour-de-tools, and de-mystify all those DIY project instructions you’ve seen. You will take from this class a bunch of new skills, a head full of confidence, and an itch to make stuff! You will hopefully complete your beautiful bird box to take home too!
