Why Women’s Carpentry?

Let’s face it, female-bodied folks are less likely to grow up using tools and building things than our male counterparts. Women also don’t see folks who look like us doing carpentry for themselves. The story that working with wood is only for men is outdated and in need of rewriting!

This class is intended to respond to that need. It gets women and non-binary folks up-to-speed on basic carpentry skills, including working with wood, planning and designing simple projects, and using hand and power tools safely and effectively.

There is a special magic that happens when we create a space to learn carpentry without any macho energy. One of our male teachers said it best, “There is a total lack of competition, and this makes for a place where learning can happen in a very different way.”

This class is open to all women (including trans) and non-binary folks.

If women’s carpentry isn’t for you, but you want to learn the basics, please check out our All-Genders Carpentry Class.

Focus is placed on creating a safe, comfortable, relaxed and fun learning environment in which students with beginning to intermediate skill levels can thrive. Our goal in this basic carpentry course is to help each student learn, rather than to progress projects at a fast pace.
