Trade School West Norwood is as part of The Open Works project. 

Classes currently run on Wednesday evenings.

What could you teach? Everyone knows how to do something that would be of value to someone else.
What skills do you have that you might be taking for granted?

Previous classes have included:

+ How to build a website
+ How to start your creative business
+ Easy bake bread recipes
+ Portrait drawing
+ Build a composting wormery
+ Basic origami
+ Knit your own scarf
+ How to win at chess
+ Grow food in the city
+ Keeping tropical fish
+ Spanish for beginners
+ Bike repair

Classes last around 1 hour.
They can be longer for making or craft sessions. Or shorter if you want to share some ideas and leave more time for discussion.

The Open Works is an experimental project aiming to transform how we live our every day lives.
How can we re-organise the way we work, eat, learn, make, fix, grow, share and cook together?
