The Toolbelt Learning Collaborative (TLC) offers practical and collaborative hands-on education using REAL projects, transforming your home & garden wish list into “I DID THIS!”

This includes:

  • Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Consulting
  • Group workshops in tool-use and woodworking for adults and youth
  • Sustainability Solutions
  • Project Management
  • Services tailored for Seniors

Tool School offers one-stop-shop personalized and small group design-build training. This includes going from clients’ initial ideas through a consultation, planning and design process, creating customized 3D designs, construction documents, tools and materials lists and finally guiding clients through in-person and live-virtual coaching services, tailored to any level.

We also offer Group Workshops at local Sunshine Coast events or at client selected sites. These range from family-friendly building classes making projects that support local community and wildlife (e.g. native-bee homes, bat and bird boxes, community tiny book-share libraries and more) to intensives such as Women’s Beginning Carpentry and Building with Reclaimed Materials.

Our Handywoman-on-Hand subscription services are tailored to the needs of seniors to assist in home and garden repair and upgrades to foster safety and confidence in clients interesting in aging-in-place and making sure that their beloved homes continue to adapt and grow with their changing needs

TLC also offers many online resources including video tutorials on common projects, information on safe and effective tool use, and tips on how to integrate sustainable design into your home and garden projects and more.
