London Green Wood shortlisted for Tesco Bags of Help

VOTE FOR US in Hackney Tesco stores

Please vote for us in Tesco stores all over Hackney from 1st March to 31st April 2019.

London Green Wood is a not for profit cooperative and a community of green woodworkers based in Abney Park Cemetery, Stoke Newington. From our outdoor woodland workshop, using wood felled locally, we bring heritage crafts to the heart of the city and make basic woodcraft skills available to all. We use hand tools and green wood straight from the log.

At our workshop people of all backgrounds and levels of experience learn and practice woodwork alongside one another. Our aim is to give people skills and confidence, to connect them with their own innate creativity, and to help them discover the joy of making with their hands.

Our activities include:

  • Whittling courses for families in school holidays
  • Green woodwork courses for adults
  • Volunteering days at our workshop
  • A members’ workshop
  • Whittling sessions at public events all over London.

With this grant from Tesco we will develop our community workshop with new tools and equipment, so that we can create more opportunities for more people to be crafty and creative with locally grown wood.
