Gifts From the Forest - Business of the Month

If you like the idea of ‘up-cycled’ wood, then why not visit our featured ‘Business of the Month’ – Gifts from the Forest! Bill has been trading at the Vineyards for eight years now and specialises in crafting jewellery boxes, clocks and bespoke woodcraft from ethical wood sources.

Previously to opening his shop here at Halfpenny Green, Bill taught woodworking to people with learning disabilities. His love of working with wood was founded twenty-five years ago when making a dolls house for his Daughter. He then went on to teach woodworking to people with learning disabilities, and since opening his shop, he has returned to his passion of teaching by offering one-to-one and family wood-turning lessons within his shop.  

Gift Vouchers for Wood-turning Lessons start at £60.00 for three hours.  In this time you will produce a bowl, candlestick and an item of your choice!

Gifts from the Forest is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 12 – 5pm, Saturday 11 – 5pm and Sunday 12 – 5pm.
