Dukeries Community Workshop

by | 4 September 2021 | Hobbies, Sherwood, Social Group

It seemed a long time coming, but the Dukeries Community Workshop re-opened in May and continues to offer daily sessions for those wanting to develop their creative skills.
Safety comes first, and there are a maximum of six users per session. They have installed additional sanitising equipment and record and monitor everyone who attends the workshop on a daily basis for the safety of all.
They have also increased their flexibility with the purchase of an additional glass kiln, new carving chisels, new battery drills and a new CNC router for engraving and decorative items. Funding has been provided by their generous supporters, Newark and Sherwood District Council, Nottinghamshire LIS fund and Veolia.
The Community Workshop is open Monday to Friday, including during the school summer holidays. Details of sessions are available on https://thedukeriescommunityworkshop.weebly.com. They look forward to seeing again both regular and new users.
The Dukeries Community Workshop is Registered Charity Number 1077837, based at the Dukeries Complex, Whinney Lane, New Ollerton NG22 9TD. It is a fully equipped workshop run by local volunteers for their community, offering supervised and tutored sessions in a range of crafts.
