Who we are

We are a team of international, passionate wood workers with the aspiration to bring the joy of wood working, crafting with your hands, thinking creatively and at the same time accurately back to the world of children’s learning. We are specialist design and build natural playground company, creating innovative, highly engineered playgrounds and adventure play areas.

Safety First

We emphasize safety as well as pleasure of making things and children will complete a piece of woodwork to take home.

No prior experience needed

No need of any prior experience and all tools/materials required to make the projects are provided by Wood Wizard Wood Workshop.

A natural for STEAM activities

With the emphasis on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics) in early childhood classrooms, the Wood Workshop provides Preschool and Primary School children a means to become makers, tinkerers and engineers.

Creative problem solving

Our goal is to teach children creative problem solving and how to use hand tools safely, effectively, and (ultimately) independent of adult assistance. Our Wood Workshop is designed to encourage creative problem solving and self-reliance.

You will find something more in wood than in books. Trees and stones will teach you that which you can never learn from masters.
