What's the difference between a 'group' and a class or workshop?Basically groups are run by their members. There isn't a teacher, although the groups might decide to arrange one. Group members are happy to share what they know, but if you want to be taught then you may be better selecting a class or workshop. These are always taught and therefore are a great place for beginners.
Another major difference between groups and classes or workshops is the cost - groups at the shed have a $5 attendance fee - this covers the cost of using the facility and you can make yourself a cuppa in our kitchen. Members may need to buy their own materials, or chip an extra contribution to buy materials or hire teachers if needed.
We are always happy to talk to people that want to get involved with groups at the shed - do you have something you would like to set up? Come and discuss it with Nell, our president at the Thursday Drop In between 10-11am. If that doesn't work for you, email us at email@example.com and we will get back to you.
The Coolum Women's Shed was established in 2018. We aim to enhance the health and wellbeing of women of the Sunshine Coast by providing the opportunity to participate in a range of activities including DIY, yoga, arts, crafts and other areas that may be of interest to our members. We are a welcoming and inclusive organisation, and we aim to create a connected community where women are empowered to pursue their interests.
