The Woodworking Studio
A woodworking studio is located on the main floor of the site, keeping the priority on community space that is an accessible creator space. This will provide artists with materials and tools that they require to complete projects. It will provide space for amateur woodworkers with space to explore their potential. It will provide space for those who have downsized their tools and woodworking area to get reintroduced to woodworking and it will provide creators with the equipment to produce works that can be sold. This space will be staffed by trained woodworkers to provide assistance and to run workshops for new woodworkers and experienced woodworkers alike.
The woodworking studio will be accessible to members and provide great space for amateurs and experts alike.
Staff will be offering introductory and advance woodworking workshops to the public. These will be open to members and non-members of the woodworking studio.
