Here are some examples of what we do
The Forest of Avon Wood Products Co-operative is a not-for-profit limited company established in 1999.
Its mission is: "To promote local timber, woodland produce and woodcrafts, and so support the sustainable development of woodlands in the West of England.
The products we produce are high quality and award-winning, and mostly completely bespoke. They range from fine art wood sculptures to high-quality furniture, large scale traditional timber-framing, organic charcoal and firewood.
The services we provide include training and educational experiences such as greenwood carving and spoon carving.
The Co-operative is administered from the Bower Ashton Woodyard in Bristol, where several of its members run businesses. You can read about the history of the Co-operative and its unique relationship with the Bower Ashton Wood Yard here.
The Co-operative consists of a dynamic collection of individuals and their businesses, charities and other organisations, all united in their passion for wood products and woodlands. It is cutting edge in its approach, and has been leading the field since its inception, which you can read about here.
Our members are multi-talented and multi-skilled - building a bike shed one moment, creating an automated puppet installation the next. The dynamism created by the network of Co-op members is distinctive and is driven by the innovative use of local timber to create visionary work that inspires our (re)connection with nature and the perennial beauty of wood.
