Welcome to the Noosa Women’s Shed
Our vision is to empower women to use tool based skills for their continuing growth and independence. We encourage our members to
Share, Learn and Make.
What’s happening at our Shed.
Our next shed meeting will be on Saturday April 13th at 1.30pm
It’s held at Noosa Seniors (formerly Noosa Community Support Centre) at 11 Wallace Drive Noosaville.
After the meeting we always have a social get together. It’s a chance to relax and mingle with like minded women. We catch up over a drink and nibbles. We ask for a contribution of $5/head to help with catering costs.
If you’re interested in joining our group you are most welcome to come along to our shed meetings to check us out.
What’s our main goals for 2024 ?
- Our new shed will be open for business, hopefully by mid May this year. The land is cleared. Shed construction started in December 2023. At the moment our temporary shed is at Noosa Seniors.
- To expand our members’ skill set – lets make more things in the shed.
As our President says, “Never underestimate what a group of women can achieve”. We’re moving forward.
In September 2022, we didn’t have a shed and therefore we weren’t doing ‘shed sessions’. And then thanks to Noosa Seniors we took a huge leap forward – they gave us access to a temporary shed. In September 2023, we increased the frequency of our tool accreditation and project building sessions. We work in our temporary shed four times a month – either a Monday morning or a Saturday afternoon. As membership grows we will expand the frequency of shed sessions.
The Noosa Men’s Shed have been a huge help in our learning phase. They have mentored us. Now, the “training wheels” are off. We have skilled members who can now pass their skills onto new members. It’s exciting. It’s what we have been working towards for some time
In August 2022 Unity Water granted us a deed of licence on land in Wallum Lane, Noosa Heads.
The land has been surveyed. Noosa Council has approved our Development Application. We have been successful in our application for a grant. We have funds to build our own shed. The land has been cleared. In November 2023 we selected the company to build our shed.
We’re on our way to a permanent home.
Who steers the NWS ?
Like all clubs we have a management committee tasked with bringing our goals into fruition. We’re all volunteers. We are sharing our life skills to help the NWS achieve its’ goals. We don’t have the resources to fund a dedicated Admin person. The committee shares that role.
