independence and empowerment
through training and employment
We help people to contribute and participate in the wider community.
A unique training course in Art, Design and Woodwork.The
course provides NVQ training in a variety of creative skills
and is accredited through the Open College Network. No
experience needed to join! The course lasts an average of
three years and certificates are awarded annually.
Recent projects have seen students design and make
inlayed boxes, working ukuleles, puppets, animations
and film scenery.
Please come in for a visit or a taster day!
Students who complete the training course can gain
employment in Poetry In Wood's own social enterprise.
We make everything from small gifts sold in local markets to site-
specific sculptural installations commissioned by businesses.
All of our products and commissions are hand-made and
available for viewing on the website.
If you are interested in having something made by our team, please get in touch and we’ll try to make it happen!
