Workshop Assistant - Orkney

  • VO59356


St Colms has a well equipped workshop and produces many woodwork items such as planters, birdhouses, garden benches, pet houses, creepies and one off items as per customers’ orders.

We are looking for volunteers to assist adults with learning disabilities with woodworking activities which include dismantling pallets, chopping kindling, cutting out wooden shapes, sandpapering and painting. This would suit someone with an interest in woodwork but experience is not necessary as training will be given. Tasks will be arranged to suit ability and preference.
