Check back for 2021 dates!
In the fall of 2020, CEBE partnered with a local contractor, Maine Passive House, to run an introduction to carpentry workshop for women called She Built This. During our planning process, we received feedback that our event description and name could be perceived as exclusive to a number of communities we wish to welcome to the trades through these workshops. In the interest of embodying the driving force of encouraging diversity in the trades, we began a rebranding process. Through the hard work of our past participants and other community members, we have renamed these workshops, "We Built This."
Tagline: Welcoming all people to carpentry
Mission: Our all-women crew of carpenters strive to provide a safe, accessible, inviting and collaborative environment for anyone interested in learning the confident operation of power and hand tools. We will empower participants to tackle carpentry projects from initial conception, to planning, material acquisition and construction. By building together, we encourage one another to feel capable of joining the trades, developing skills for self-reliance and sustainability, and relying on the communities that grow out of these workshops for support in our future endeavors.
Date/Time: 2021 dates to be announced..
