About the event

These series of workshops allow participants to complete a variety of skilled trade projects!

This workshop is the perfect introduction to trades for young women. Not only will you learn about some of the different trades available, but you'll also get to have some fun while doing it! The day will begin with participants completing some training on some tools, followed by each participant learning how to build their very own cranberry rake to take home and keep, forever!


  • Lunch will be provided (Domino's Pizza - however, special accommodations can be made for those with allergies or food restrictions.)
  • Door prize - Participants will be entered in a draw for a wireless Bluetooth speaker!
  • Materials and supplies will be provided in the workshop.

Thank you to the Government of Northwest Territories, Department of Education, Culture and Employment for making this opportunity possible!
