The Sylva Foundation Teaching Barn is the most recent development on the Wood Centre site, providing us with our first dedicated teaching classroom. The multi-purpose space is fitted out with hand tools and workbenches ready to deliver education and training programmes for the Sylva Wood School.
It has been designed to easily transform from workshop to classroom, allowing us to host presentations, seminars, and events, as well as a wide range of practical courses. It is self-contained with its own kitchen, disabled toilet, and car parking, and is situated at the heart of the site with access to the Future Forest, Forest school site, and our community of small businesses.
We are very grateful to the following funders for supporting the construction of the Teaching Barn and much of its equipment, Oxfordshire Leader, People’s Postcode Lottery, the Aspen Trust, the Shanly Foundation and the D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust.
