|Our course gives you hands on experience and in-depth tuition in the fundamental skills and techniques of greenwood furniture making. These are suitable for total beginners and each revolve around a beautiful product to make yourself and take home!

Silbers CIC works with people with a wide range of disabilities:
• Learning disabilities.
• Mental ill health.
• Physical and sensory disabilities.
• Substance misuse.
• Work limiting health conditions such as epilepsy, cancer and arthritis.
Participants are tutored in weekly greenwood craft sessions in a safe and supportive therapeutic environment. This is an opportunity for people to develop new skills, grow in confidence, meet new people and develop their resilience.
We have been using the VC Gallery in Pembroke Dock’s woodwork room for our Greenwood Furniture Making.
