Artweeks at the Sylva Wood Centre

The Sylva Wood Centre in Long Wittenham is a community of small businesses and woodworking professionals who design or make in wood and related crafts, run by Sylva Foundation. Meet the resident designers alongside invited craftspeople, and marvel at the fine furniture, unique woodcarving, traditional wooden boats, small pieces in beautiful woods, original soft furnishing, outdoor furniture, screens and buildings in oak, prints and pieces made in mixed media combining wood, metal, resin and textiles.

Meet the makers, tour their workshops, buy gift vouchers for craft courses, and buy or commission individual pieces. Watch live demonstrations during the day, and enjoy the pop-up HardWood Café. Visitors can take a stroll outside in the developing Future Forest and Community Orchard.

ArtWeeks 2016

posted on May 25, 2016

Oxfordshire Artweeks 2016 at the Sylva Wood Centre was a great success, attracting about 1000 visitors during the nine days, plus a day dedicated for local schools to visit.

We had many very positive comments about the future development of the site and the work of the charity. We launched two regular giving schemes connected to plans for start improving the local landscape: a community orchard cropshare scheme, and Future Forest Friends scheme.

We are grateful to all the exhibitors for their time and contributions. Also to the Woodland Trust for the Wandering Tree, which wowed visitors and introduced the Tree Charter.

Here are a few images taken during ArtWeeks 2016.
