On taking risks

This year I've been working with Roz Fenson and a group of amazing women we lovingly refer to as the 'Dream Team' on a new non-profit organisation called The Nest Community Inc.

The Nest is an accessible place for women and children of all generations and diverse backgrounds to learn, connect and nurture each other through artisan and craft practice. The program focuses on the value of sustainability and creativity and makes everyone feel really great about what they can achieve and make with their own two hands!

It's basically the women’s counterpart to the successful Men’s Shed concept, how great is that! 

Yesterday we moved The Nest into a beautiful heritage listed home at Everton Park and had our first crafty get together. 

It's been a roller coaster start to the year and we're taking a big risk but we believe it's important for every community to have a permanent home where women, teens and children can get together, feel safe, tell stories, make stuff, learn new things, have fun, be empowered and feel like they belong.  Yes, every community!

If you would like to take part, support us, come to a workshop, join a social group or you just want to know what's going on head here and sign up to the email list or book in to a workshop/event. We're dreaming BIG and we want to share the journey with you!
