We’re here to make small British woodlands thrive, by connecting people with trees and timber in new and meaningful ways.
We run a maker-space, courses, events and a community woodland group in Dartington, South Devon.
The woods make you happy. Fact.
Our aim is to innovate the type of activities that happen in woods, and bring a wide range of people into contact with trees. When we put on events, you’ll hear about them here and on our social media sites (links below).
We also arrange bespoke events for a variety of occasions from music gigs, to week-long camps, lectures, pop-up restaurants, film viewings, silent discos and many more. We’re very open minded and game for some interesting things. If you’d like to bring an idea to us, we’d be happy to talk.

WOODLAB IS COMING!
Let’s build a place where people can share machinery, knowledge and skills. Let’s make a place where we can use local timber, to craft awesome products. Let’s make a place where people can learn about wood, and the doors are open to everyone.
So we are. We have travelled internationally to learn from the best maker-spaces, community workshops and fab-labs.
The Wood Lab concept lies somewhere between a community wood-workshop and a fab-lab, that unites small wood-based businesses together with timber suppliers, processors and foresters. Our location is on the edges of North Woods, Dartington, UK.
This is a collaborative project and during our development phase, we are inviting anyone who works with trees or timber to share their ideas, or ways they might like to be involved.
We're expecting WoodLab to offer:
Extensive and well equipped, modern machine workshop
Naturally lit, rentable work space + storage
Comprehensive dust extraction
Timber drying kiln facilities
Tuition and courses
The network and support of other experienced makers
An e-store for members to sell their products
150 acres of woodland to relax and draw inspiration from
Great convenient location
