London Green Wood is a community of green woodworkers based in Abney Park Cemetery, Hackney. Our aim is encourage craftyness, creativity and self-reliance in everybody. From our outdoor woodland workshop, using locally-felled wood, we bring heritage crafts to the heart of the city and make basic woodcraft skills available to all. We use green wood straight from the log and hand tools.
We run a weekly community workshop, courses for adults and for families and volunteering days at our Abney Park workshop. We also arrange courses and events for groups (away days, bonding, parties or just because). And we work in collaboration with other community groups bringing woodwork skills to their sites or inviting them to ours.
