Summer School

The Summer School is for those who have an interest in wood as a material, and see forests and woodlands as a place for learning and growing.

Sylva summer school 2022 with the V&A: exploring timber properties at the Sylva Wood School

The Sylva Summer School is a unique opportunity to realise three major ambitions at Sylva Wood School; to bridge the gap between education and the wood industry, to encourage a diverse range of people to come and engage with the opportunities we have to offer, and to collaborate in creating inspiring experiences and opportunities for young people to experience making with home-grown timber.

Over the past three years, Summer School participants have been given the opportunity to immerse themselves in all aspects of the Sylva Wood Centre: accessing the well-equipped Wood School workshops and industry-standard equipment; work with experienced mentors and teachers, and connect with our vibrant and creative community.
