Edventure MAKE Course

18th Mar 2019 @ 09:30 - 14:30


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

You’ll spend three weeks in a team designing and making products by hand from unseasoned or ‘green’ wood. You’ll start in the woods by selecting and feeling your tree. Then, bring it back to Edventure and work with an expert local woodworker to elarn 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.

You 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 new people and work as a team
  • Make things with your hands
  • Try your hand at a wide range of skills needed to set up a small business
  • Get help with next steps and support from a mentor
  • Access to a work and study space with free internet and coffee

Who we are looking for:

  • Anyone between 19-35 can apply
  • You don’t need any qualifications or experience
  • People who are motivated and are up for a challenge, including those who are out of work, looking for new direction and who want to gain skills and experience


This course is free and is made possible thanks to funding from the ITV Peoples Project.

Dates and times:

MAKE runs for 3 weeks on Monday-Thursday from 9:30am – 2:30pm. The course times are designed to fit between school hours for parents. You will also need to be available on Sunday 6 April to take your product to the Frome Independent Market.


Please apply here. You’ll receive an automated email response with a link to book an informal interview with us. Places are given on a rolling basis – apply early for the best chance to get a place.
