The Women's Shed is completely run by volunteers.
Give us a block of land to use (Only half joking!)
The Coolum Women's shed is a space for women to connect through shared interests. We are a non profit organisation run by volunteers. Our members organise a wide variety of activities including arts, crafts, health and wellness. We aim to keep activity prices low so that women can participate on a frequent basis. Our members run groups based on their interests, and we also run taught 'workshops' that cover skills we want to learn. We do not have our own building yet, and hire the Community Centre at Research Street, Coolum. During the lockdown for COVID-19 we had the opportunity to work on our online offerings. We have had women attend our workshops that could never have attended in person. We intend to continue to offer online activities so that we are able to reach women who do not live in the local area, or can't make it to the shed. We also have a members only area of our website which includes 'catch up ' recordings or videos.
Whether we see you online or in person, we look forward to seeing you soon :-)
