Building a community of confident capable women BOOK A WORKSHOPSIGN UP FOR NEWS

We couldn't find a place for women to learn non-traditional skills, so we created one.

She Skills is challenging stereotypes and building a community of confident capable women.  We teach short courses in all things non-traditional in a safe and encouraging environment. Woodworking, power tools, building, car maintenance and more. At She Skills, you will be encouraged to step outside your comfort zone to explore new skills. Remember, “there are no mistakes, only opportunities for creative thinking” (Patt Gregory). Check out our She Skills workshops today!!

Our Team

Our Team

Our team Meg and Clint Solly have been working together for 16 years and have a passion for teaching all things creative.

Here's what people are saying!!

I cannot recommend She Skills enough. Between them, Meg and Clint have an excellent combination of skills, enthusiasm, knowledge, patience and resources to provide a positive and fun learning environment. It was great to spend a few hours using different skills and making something with my hands. I’ll be doing more courses and have recommended She Skills to everyone I work with. Thanks for an awesome and inspiring day 🙂 5 stars from me!

The class exceeded my expectations. The instructor was professional, thorough, helpful and supportive. Appropriate attention was paid to safety principles prior to any use of tools and the level of supervision during the class was good. I learned to handle selected power tools and hand tools safely and have a lot more confidence now than before the class. I thoroughly enjoyed the myself and came away with a real sense of achievement. I would definitely recommend this class to others (in fact I already have) and will look out for other classes as Meg explores more options.

She Skills is a fantastic way to learn new skills and gain confidence in a supportive, fun environment. A few classes have inspired me to start my own upcycling projects!

Steph

What an incredible learning experience and bonding experience with like minded women, in an environment that was inspirational. Thanks Meg. The skills I have learnt will go with me for life!

Donna

Thank you She Skills for an amazing session last weekend! Can’t thank you both enough for teaching us skills to help us help ourselves in many of these home projects! My family were amazed at my little woodwork creation! The part I enjoyed the most was using the drop saw. I would highly recommend the She Skills course to any ladies to hone their confidence in tackling basic carpentry skills hands on! Great day! May there be many more to come!

Syliva

The She Skills workshop was a big confidence booster for me. It was a really fun day learning new skills along side other like-minded women and getting to make a cool woodworking project I can proudly hang in my home. I left feeling inspired and have since bought a timber gardening trolley, sanded it back and re-painted it myself (something I’d only talk about doing before). Now I’m keen to get my little balcony garden thriving again. Thanks for the motivation She Skills and the new skills to boot.

Furniture Making for Beginners

March 9, 2017, 8:30am - March 12, 2017, 4:30pm

She Skills workshops are designed by women, for women. We want you to feel confident enough to imagine, design and create great things. In this four (4) day class you will learn how to design and custom build your own coffee table, using a range of hand and power tools incorporating traditional and modern techniques. Tables are approximately 800mm (L) X 500mm (W) X 450mm (H), and while we will folllow a common plan, there is room for you to bring your own creativity to the woodworking party and create a piece of functional art. We will teach some traditional techniques, and your project will have a modern aesthetic that you will be proud to display in your home. This class will run from Thursday through to Sunday from 8:30am till 4:30pm for a maximum of 8 people with 2 instructors. All your materials are included and we'll even organise lunch each day. Come along and build your own bench or bring your friend, sister, flatmate, mother, daughter or partner and build a bench together. We teach in a safe, encouraging and social environment with other like minded women. You shouldn't expect to go home an expert, but you will gain an insight into what's possible with practice!! She Skills is building a community of confident and capable women, who are happy to get outside their comfort zone and take on a challenge. We are proud members of the Maker Movement. In a world of rampant consumption and keeping up with the latest trends on Instagram, the simple art of making something with your own hands can bring you immeasurable pleasure. And if it’s made well, it might just last you a lifetime.
