Our Services

Woodwork

Our fully-equipped woodwork studio enables our students to learn practical woodworking skills.

Assisted by a specialist instructor, they produce a wide range of wooden items, including bird boxes, bird tables and ornaments for the home and garden. We use mainly recycled materials, kindly donated by the local community and businesses. Students are involved with the entire production process. This includes sourcing material, designing the product, building and marketing. Students display and sell their finished articles at our garden centre, café and at local fetes.

We also operate The Wood Shack, producing larger items such as log stores and garden furniture, to our own or customers' designs. The timber we use is locally and sustainably sourced.

I enjoy doing woodwork because I enjoy making things that are sold at the shop
