  • Description

    Description

    We are a wood workshop that is part of a Craft Centre in Snowdonia National Park, Wales. We make furniture, gifts, and artwork out of reclaimed and recycled materials. We use "waste products" that can be turned into beautiful pieces of art. Our workshop is connected to a shop where we sell our pieces. We also run workshops teaching people how to make their own creations out of recycled wood. No forests are harmed in the making of our products, and we are proud of the unique forms and shapes that recycled wood can create.

    As a volunteer we need your help with creating artwork and gifts for the shop, helping run workshops for the community, scavenging and collecting materials (finding driftwood from the beach) or collecting fence posts from the local surroundings. You will be taught the techniques we use to clean, shape, and construct our pieces. We also want to inspire people who come into our shop to create for themselves beautiful art from the resources which are all around us in our daily lives.

    There are several beautiful waterfalls located nearby and there are lots of scenic walks and mountain bike trails in the vicinity. If you like nature there are mountains, lakes, rivers and sandy beaches to explore on your down time. I am happy to share this beautiful place with you and to exchange knowledge, experiences, and ideas.
