Community Workshop

by | 9 October 2018 | Education and Learning, Hobbies, Sherwood

Volunteers from the Dukeries Community Workshop had a fantastic time at the Robin Hood Festival 2018. It was a fantastic fundraiser for them this year and their sale of work stand and tombola took £1,200. Well done to all their woodworkers for making so many beautiful things, which included bowls, rustic bird houses garden tables and bird feeders as well as medieval weapons and games for the children.

The workshop has two short courses in creative glass work starting this term alongside their regular daily sessions in all aspects of woodwork.
