Nurture, Engage and Learn
The Nest Community, based in a heritage building in Brisbane’s Everton Park, is founded on the principles of ‘ craftivism’ that celebrates the social and wellbeing benefits of making by hand, sharing skills and empowering through creation. Since 2014, we have fulfilled our purpose of providing a safe and supportive environment for women and girls of all ages to to build confidence and resilience by participating in our workshops and social enterprise initiatives. We are a self funded organisation, driven by a passionate team of volunteers that are passionate about giving people the opportunity to nurture, engage and learn.
The Haberdashery + Fabric Thrift Shop; our main social enterprise, is a treasure trove of donated, pre-loved and vintage supplies that not only resources our workshops, but also supports many other charitable organisations throughout Brisbane. Sustainability is at the heart of our purpose. We encourage the use of reclaimed materials, support the principles of the slow fashion movement and the values of up-cyling.
