Woodworking for kids

Kids as young as five will have a successful experience in woodworking if allowed to master one skill at a time.

Our program introduces children to the world of craftsmanship, starting with small, independent creations crafted with their own hands. As children progress, so do their creations, fostering a journey of growth and creativity.

At our workshops, children engage in the joy of learning and mastering the use of real child sized tools, cultivating their creativity to produce unique masterpieces. Each child produces their own projects. We emphasise safety as well as pleasure of building unique items. All copleted pieces of woodwork, children take home.

Who we are

We are a team of individuals driven by passion for woodworking, child development, the environment, and sustainability. Our collective commitment led us to make a conscious decision to dedicate our time and knowledge to passing on hands-on skills to children. Through carefully crafted lessons, we aim to provide enjoyable, inspiring, confidence-boosting experiences that enrich their capabilities. Our goal is to contribute to the building of a foundation for their future, fostering skills and values that will accompany them on their journey.

What we do

Nurseries and Primary Schools

In recent years, Wood Wizards has conducted workshops in numerous nurseries and primary schools across the island. The Wood Wizards Design and Tech program has seamlessly integrated into the curriculums of many schools. Additionally, we offer our woodworking lessons as engaging after-school activities.


At the Wood Wizards premises, we offer After School Clubs and Saturday Clubs. During holidays, we host special All Day Clubs, including programs for Easter, Summer, and Autumn Mid-term breaks. Our fully equipped workshops, located all over Cyprus, and other countries around the world, warmly welcome children aged 5-12 years old to join us in a spacious and engaging environment.

How we work

Safety first

We place a high priority on both safety and the joy of crafting individual projects. Children will use specially designed child-size tools, not only relishing the creative process but also independently completing their masterpiece to proudly take home.

No experience needed

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

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.
