Gather Dudley has 4 spaces for Trade School classes right on the High Street in Dudley
If you are registering to teach a class you will need to choose which space you want to use that will suit your class and your learners.
The coffee shop faces onto the street. It has full height windows which let in lots of light, and has been lovingly fitted and furnished with upcycled pallets, chairs, tables and more. It seats around 30 people, you can move tables and chairs arond in the space for your class. It's a great, cosy space for craft and discussion based classes.
The Inspiration Lab
This is a smaller space which has been co-created by local people. It features a wood pallet ceiling, a chill out alcove, hand made OSB board tables and stools, plus cushions and a rag rug made on the premises. It seats 12 people comfortably around tables and is a great space if your class needs a room out of the way, for example language or music classes.
The workshop is kitted out with tools for working with wood, and workbenches. Around 10 people could work together in the space. A great room for classes which involve mess and tools.
There is a small urban garden behind the building. The views aren't great, but the garden will be beautiful. Great if you want to run a class which involves gardening skills!
Please let us know if you need any small resources for your class.
