Wood Centre Courses

The Sylva Wood Centre offers a prime location for learning and skills development. Situated in the heart of the Oxfordshire countryside, within 5 miles of Didcot Parkway railway station and 10 miles from Oxford City, we offer excellent facilities for courses in woodworking, forestry and rural management, outdoor learning and other subjects. Courses are run among a thriving community of wood businesses, with excellent specialist facilities, surrounded by an attractive landscape including a young forest, outdoor education area, and community orchard.

Gift vouchers now available for courses - a perfect gift! Visit our shop


Are you an experienced tutor and interested in running a course at the Wood Centre? We provide the space and essential materials, and advertise the course. Provided there are enough attendees booked, you then run the course and get paid for doing so. Please contact us to discuss.
