The STOKE 2000 deliver recycling workshops with young people to recycle pallet wood. We use these to create our award winning, bottle-oven shaped garden wall planters & other products for your community space. We provide a highly engaging art and educational experience, learning woodworking skills while leaving a cultural legacy with the next generation. Participants also learn about the city’s industrial heritage, enriching the curriculum whilst engaging in our practical woodworking activities.


We also work with volunteers in community groups and charities. For example, those who tackle loneliness and social isolation, to make wooden products that have a recycling focus. Our workshops provide an opportunity to socialise and share stories about the pottery industry, and learn new or build on existing skills. All this while getting active and increasing people’s general health and wellbeing.
