Carpentry (A Place to Grow)

What will I do?

Make garden furniture out of recycled wood. Experience the atmosphere of a woodwork shop and working as a team. Learn to sell and market the products at events and Farmers' Markets whilst having an enjoyable time.

Who is it for?

Our aim is to facilitate the employment of young adults with learning disabilities by producing high quality garden furniture using only re-cycled wood. This comes almost entirely from recycling pallets that were destined to be burnt or broken up and discarded, thus helping to preserve forests around the world.

What will I get out of it?

Learn basic carpentry skills. Examples of our work are the Adirondack rustic chair that was first developed in Westport, New York; bird boxes, planters and tables, as well as the nativity crib above made for a local parish. All made from solid wood and screws which ensure a longer life for the product.

When is it?

Saturday, 10:30 - 14:30
