Beginning in 2014, through a series of detailed interviews and posts I aimed to spotlight and encourage growth of my fellow womxn’s woodwork and art. I combined my passion for people, writing, and love of woodworking to feature some of the craft’s best women and non-binary woodworkers.
What resulted is the Women of Woodworking project, which now includes a free virtual Affinity Group in partnership with The Furniture Society, a live Instagram interview series during the pandemic, sponsored classes, a free monthly Community Highlights enewsletter, and more!
Support the project and get your own merch at the official Women of Woodworking online store!
In May 2020, the Women of Woodworking project’s essay series became a Medium publication. A few essays were published on Medium as well as Popular Woodworking.
The Women of Woodworking ENewsletter, now Community Highlights, was created in August 2020. Click here to subscribe!
