Description

Edventure MAKE Course

A free, 3 week, part-time course by Edventure: Frome for 19-35-year-olds in Frome.

You'll spend three weeks in a team designing and making products by hand from unseasoned or ‘green’ wood. You'll work with an expert local woodworker to learn techniques and get stuck into the making and experimenting process before coming up with products for your team to sell at the Frome Independent Market and get to choose what to do with the profits. You'll develop business skills and explore new ways to progress towards a livelihood that matters to you.

  • Try out and test creative ideas

  • Meet and work with new people

  • Get help with next steps and support from a mentor

  • Access to a work and study space with free internet and coffee

  • Make money from what you sell
