Joiners donate skills and expertise

Joiners donate skills and expertise

Stockport College’s joinery department is looking forward to sharing its skills with the local care home community by donating some handmade planters.

The wooden containers were hand-crafted by site joinery students and apprentice bench joiners, by carefully measuring up and fitting their designs, using their new found learning in geometrics.

Lecturer Antony Wood said: “Planters are a great way for students to practise their joinery skills, which we can then donate to local care homes and brighten up the local community.”

Learners used timber recycled from basic joint work to highlight the College’s mission to combat waste.
