Do tools intimidate you?

Let this LADY TRADIE teach you! 

I’d love you to join me for a three hour intensive tool workshop! Learn how to safely use tools like the drop saw, the drill and driver, the handheld router, the orbital sander and the jigsaw. As well as other workshop favourites! Learn how to use them safely and confidently in a friendly and supportive environment. This course will give you the confidence to tackle small projects at home, or take on one of my weekend courses!

With no previous woodworking experience necessary! Learn a new skill in a welcoming, non intimidating environment. In my small classes you’ll feel 100% supported, able to ask lots of questions, and all in a relaxed, encouraging atmosphere.
