Woodwork Department

Based on the same site as The Woodfuel Centre is Blyth Star Enterprises’ Woodwork Department day service, where individuals living with complex mental health needs and learning disabilities can take part in a range of workshop-based joinery projects.

Guided by a team of professionals, service users are taught how to use various tools and machinery, how to apply different finishes to wood products and many other aspects of woodwork in a safe and friendly environment which encourages social interaction and team working.

Many of the products made at the Woodwork Department go on sale to the general public through our retail unit at our sister site – Stakeford Nurseries, but we also accept private commissions for bespoke items like sheds, log stores, planters and children’s play equipment.

If you have a project in mind you’d like to discuss with us, call 01670 857138.
