From our founder, Kara Bird

Our next workshop is quickly approaching, and I cannot wait. It is always a fantastic opportunity to meet more women interested in DIY and learning new skills. It really warms the heart and reminds me why we started Practical Woman.

Just over a year ago, I felt stuck. Stuck in my job and frustrated by the lack of change with regards to equality and inclusion. From this sprang the idea of helping the cause and giving women the tools (literally!) to take more control over their lives.

At the workshop in April we saw women who at the beginning of the day didn’t feel confident with DIY and found drills scary, drilling into concrete walls by the end of the day! It was quite the transformation and very powerful to witness. At our next workshop on Saturday 21 July, we will see more women becoming more confident and striding forward. I can’t wait.
