Our Purpose

Our purpose is to extend access to carpentry and the trades by bringing women, people of color, gender non-conforming, LGBTQ+, people of different ages and abilities together to learn in an inclusive space. We have run thirteen workshops to date with various topics, instructors and tools. We strive to provide a safe and collaborative environment to learn carpentry skills and power tool use. We connect participants with tradespeople and mentors to develop skills, confidence and community.There is a significant labor shortage in the trades and carpentry skills are critical for community resilience.
