Presenting hand & power tool workshops for women from all backgrounds to gain confidence through practical and building skills.

At our DIY Workshops for Women participants learn basic hand and power tool skills, get to try our “gain a skill” station, build confidence and create a useful item they can take home. Our male and female, trade-qualified facilitators encourage, support, guide and supervise – it’s a great growth and learning experience for both our tradies and the workshop participants!

Currently we are sharing resources of another not-for-profit, the Joondalup Mens Shed, to run our workshops. Our aim is to expand these so we can run them independently, include more trade skills, as well as purchase a trailer and tools in order to market to a wider area. By building these facilities TradeUP will be able to reach more people – specifically rural and remote communities. Check out our YouTube video about our Empower Program.
