Broads and Boards is an Austin-based organization dedicated to empowering women in woodworking. Started in 2016 by Leeann Terwilliger, a social worker and woodworker in Austin, Broads and Boards aims to create safe and welcoming spaces for women to learn craft and trade skills. In 2017, Leeann teamed up with longtime friend, Cate Graziani, to turn Broads and Boards into a more formal cooperative community space. Leeann and Cate hope to connect with other women-identified Austinites interested in woodworking in order to create a cooperative space that supports the development of woodworking skills through workshops and membership. Women of all woodworking skill levels are welcome to join them for a happy hour discussion at Butterfly Bar on Wednesday, August 16th at 5:30pm. For more information click here.
