Carpentry For Women - Weekend Workshop

Sat Apr 21 to Sun Apr 22, 2018, Peterborough, ON

Have you ever wanted to tackle a carpentry project but don’t know quite where to start? Are you looking to gain more confidence with power tools and workshop techniques?

The Carpentry for Women workshop creates a friendly, inviting space for women who would like to learn the basics of carpentry. In the comfort of a women-only space, experienced carpenters Jen Feigin and Deirdre McGahern will introduce you to the world of measuring, marking and layout, hand and power tools.

Over two days, you will gain confidence in basic carpentry as you work on a take-home project. There will be plenty of time to practice with tools and to become familiar with terminology. You’ll learn about tool safety, how to choose and buy tools, selecting and purchasing materials for projects, making sketches for projects and choosing non-toxic, healthy finishes.

Small group learning affords lots of time to develop skills and confidence, ask questions and discuss ideas.

Each participant will construct and bring home a pair of unique folding saw horses that can be used as a work platform for future projects or as a base for a desk!
