We established the Sylva Wood School to plug significant gaps which exist in formal wood education. Ultimately, we want to support a revival of Britain’s wood culture through excellence in creativity and craftsmanship using home-grown timber.
Our aims are to:
We provide a growing range of courses at the Sylva Wood School under two main categories:
Maker Sessions enable course participants to learn new skills and take away a beautiful object. Examples include coat hooks, greenwood stool making, steam-bent lightshades, ash canoe paddle, and more.
Woodwork Sessions are designed to hone your skills and techniques. Examples include dovetailing, steam-bending, hand-planing, and more.
