Hammerstone School offers a variety of carpentry courses for women. Our classes range from basic skills-building workshops, to longer, more in-depth intensives. Students of all experience level are welcome. Our classes build community and camaraderie as well as structures.

The Hammerstone School Mission

Through the teaching of excellent building skills, Hammerstone School aims to empower women to use their bodies and minds for creative and useful ends. By increasing the skills of individual women, we hope to increase the number of women in the trades, and ultimately change workplaces for women in and outside of the trades.

“The balance of learning through lecture and hands-on (increasing hands-on time as the course progressed) felt perfect.
