A Women in Joinery workshop, ‘Erne Craftie Women’, currently taking place in Enniskillen has been shortlisted in the UTV region for the “People’s Project 2018” run by the Big Lottery Fund.
The women have been learning these skills since last September.
Fermanagh Rural Community Initiative (FRCI) based on the Tempo Road in Enniskillen wants to further develop these skills through the Erne Craftie Women Project.
Craftie stands for ‘Creative Restoration of Abandoned Furniture and Trees in Enniskillen’.
The funding would enable the project to extend the availability of classes from two evenings to daytime and possibly relocate to larger premises in addition to purchasing a variety of joinery tools, machinery and materials.
The project builds up women’s confidence and skills to enable them to take on more ambitious projects. It also offers a chance for people to meet and form friendships.
You can help the project gain this much needed funding by voting for Erne Craftie Women online at The People’s Project before midday on 30 April 2018. To vote simply click here.
