Train the Trainers for Woodworking: Women, Trans, and Gender NonBinary folks only

>Sat. Feb 29th 2020 10:00 am-6:00pm Oakland CA

>>PREREQUISITE: FM Woodworking workshop or Pollinate workshop

The objective of the workshop is to have an empowering afternoon deepening knowledge, confronting social myths, and gaining skills to become a Frailty Myths Facilitator!

This workshop will cover an in depth conversation on dimensional lumber and include a field trip to the hardware store to go over choosing wood. We will also be taking a deep dive into a handful of power tools like the circular saw as well as a session on facilitation, speaking in front of groups and learning styles!

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.

This workshop is offered for free in order to be accessible to low-income and marginalized communities.

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.

Please donate if you are able so we can continue offering empowerment workshops around the country.

Suggested Donation is $100-$200 and any amount is deeply appreciated.

Any and all donations will first go to cover the cost of this workshop and any remaining donations will go toward future Frailty Myths events.
