Stirling Women's Shed

Since July 2023, The Joy of Wood has worked in partnership with The City of Stirling to operate and grow the Stirling Women’s Shed in Scarborough.

In this partnership, The Joy of Wood runs a range of workshops, open sessions, and private tuition sessions for women ages 16 and over, although girls from age 8 are welcome to join in workshops with a parent or grandparent.

While there is some small machinery and power tools available, the focus of the Stirling Women’s Shed is to learn about and use traditional woodworking hand skills and techniques. We feel it is empowering to learn to use our hands to create beautiful objects and furniture.

Who is the Stirling Women's Shed for?

Women of all ages (anyone who identifies as a woman is welcome, and the minimum age for membership is 16 years old) - you do not need to live in the City of Stirling to attend the Stirling Women's Shed.

Girls from age 8 are also welcome to join workshops with a parent or grandparent present.
