Opening its doors in 2014 Rainey Wood Works creates an atmosphere where you the client become the carpenter. Through workshops targeted at various groups, including but not limited to single women, or women who would like to be independent in their homes. Rainey Wood Works allows the client to learn skills necessary for attending to their own home maintenance needs without requiring the use of an outside tradesman. Having spent years in a male dominated industry Lorraine discovered the need for women to feel empowered and enabled to achieve things around the home which were traditionally deemed the 'mans job'. Wanting to share her knowledge with others, both women & men she felt it was time to create Rainey Wood Works and offer workshops to show people just how capable they are, without the need for hiring a tradesman or 'hire a hubby' service.
Lorraine has a broad range of skills & knowledge collected over the years of working as a Carpenter for various companies around Perth. She also offers a commission system of works, where she can design and taylor make items to your needs & requirements. Allowing you the customer to design your own bespoke item for a commissioned work also puts you in the ‘Carpenters boots’, ensuring you are purchasing an item tailor made to your needs.
