About Her Cave

Her cave was established in 2015 by our President, Regina Doyle. 

What started as a small group of friends, has grown to become an accredited community-based, non-profit charity where women are encouraged to come in the name of friendship and all things crafty.

Some members have not lived on the NSW Central Coast for very long and joined as a way of making friends, others have lived here for a very long time and simply found there was no such place to meet like-minded women. Women who enjoy creating things and expanding their circle of friends while helping others to make truly beautiful hand made pieces.

Because we have such a wide range of ladies who have been attending, some for almost two years, we have a wide range of skills and interests so the odds are you will find someone of a similar age group and/or a similar group of interests.

What does it cost?

  •  There is a $20 annual membership fee to remain a member of Her Cave Inc. This goes towards funding the administrative activities required to keep the organisation running.
  • We also ask members who participate to pay a $10 weekly contribution towards operating costs so we can ensure the storage cupboards remain full of exciting bits and pieces for craft projects, as well as excellent sewing machines etc.

As we are open 2 days a week (Wed, Fri – see What’s on for details of opening times) the weekly contribution covers all your visits, whether you come on 1 or 2 days.

  • The only change to fees is when we are doing a craft that requires specific additional purchases, such as an introduction to pottery. The additional fee only applies to people using these resources (you may prefer to work on a project using our standard supplies) and will be spent on expenses for glazing & firing as well as the clay.

You will be told well in advance if a fee applies to a specific workshop (this information will be included when the workshop is scheduled in the calendar).


What Do We Do at Her Cave Inc.?
