Bespoke Training

Opera House Workshop

Book Penny to run a bespoke workshop or seminar at your event or school.

Penny can facilitate a customised hand and power-tool workshop for your event, or teaching facility.

These workshops are fun and unique team building experiences that create confidence and life skills for all your participants.

It’s amazing the empowerment that you can bring to your group, when they know how to confidently use a power tool and build something with their hands.

  • Confidence.
  • Team building.
  • Life skills.


    Contact us to book Penny for your next Workshop.

    “This is a fantastic course for anyone who needs a little reassurance with tools. Penny is a patient and kind teacher with a great sense of humour. Before I did this course, I couldn’t use a drill, now I’m a confident “handy-woman” in my home. It’s rather liberating knowing you do it yourself.  Thanks Penny!”
