Wyldwoods CIC was set up in September 2007 by Stephanie Brett.
Based at Dean Corner Farmhouse near Broseley, Shropshire, the organisation is set up to “meet the needs of disadvantaged individuals through meaningful, practical, rural experiences.” It aims to achieve this by offering unique opportunities in arts and craft, horticulture, cooking, rural skills and other activities to those for whom mainstream education doesn’t provide suitable stimulus.
Wyldwoods also offers a range of other opportunities to groups and individuals from Shropshire and the West Midlands that find themselves disadvantaged financially, geographically or socially. We are always open to suggestions for workshops, courses and talks etc – use the quick link below or write or telephone using the details on the contact us page.
The site at Dean Corner has a 3.5 acre paddock, a 40 x 16m pond, large, dry workshops with power and water, a 16ft diameter Mongolian yurt (a circular tent – recently expertly re-covered by the wonderful SpiritsInTent) vegetable beds, a wooden ‘henge’, covered outdoor instruction area, play trail and a small woodland area. There are safe country paths and bridleways to walk, and the whole area is situated in a peaceful, idyllic spot, away from noisy roads and other buildings, yet just a 15 minute walk from the centre of Broseley.
