Weekend Workshops

Mother/Daughter Builder Bootcamp

In this 3-hour multi-generational workshop, moms and daughters (9 years and up) are invited to learn the basics of wood-based building in our Girls Garage workshop! Building is bonding! Mother/daughter pairs will work together to learn the proper use of a wide variety of hand tools and power tools, and tricks of the trade for efficiency and craft. We’ll use a measuring tape, speed square, chop saw, jigsaw, bandsaw, sanding block, drill, and driver! And best of all, you will put all these skills to use to complete your very own wooden toolbox to take home (to fill with tools, obviously!). Each mother/daughter duo will build a toolbox together and leave with a beautiful reminder of their work.

**While we call this workshop “mother/daughter,” grandmothers, aunties, big sisters, step-moms, and other adult female guardians are of course welcome!

Minimum age for child: 9 years and up
