Give the Gift of Woodworking and Smashing Patriarchy!

We are hosting a special workshop come the beginning of the year to help secure funding for our free workshops for the rest of the year. Your gift not only gets you or your loved one a spot in the workshop, it also pays forward, so that others with less resources can attend our free community workshops!

For a minimum one time donation of $200 or a monthly membership at the Mountain Climber lever ($50) you can guarantee a spot in the workshop.  If you’re gifting, we’ll send you a special confirmation PDF to print out for the lucky person.   

FUNDRAISER: Basic Power Tools and Woodworking

*This workshop is specifically for any one who identifies as a woman, trans, or gender non conforming*

Jan. 21st 2018 11:00am-4:00pm

Oakland, California


This workshop will cover how to operate a number of basic power tools and apply those skills to a small carpentry project that you get to take home with you.

The workshop includes discussions on the transformative quality of radical self-reliance, how patriarchy impacts us, and societal myths that surround tools and building that often keep many from comfortably participating in these spaces.

Tools and materials will be provided. The speed and direction of the workshop will be participant led.

All of the facilitators identify as women, trans or gender non-conforming and are volunteering their time.

The objective of the workshop is to have an empowering afternoon learning new skills, confronting social myths, and gaining strength from each other.

Frailty Myths’ community workshops are by application only and free of charge. We currently have an average of 100 people apply for 15 spots at each workshop. We are committed to prioritizing people from marginalized communities who have the least access to these spaces and skills, specifically Black, Brown, and Indigenous people as well as folks who are differently-abled and those who have been excluded due to other forms of state-sanctioned violence.
