Classes are held in our workshop nestled on the edge of Cannock Chase. Within the classes children are taught workshop safety as well as how to use specialist equipment, tools and machinery. Members will also learn teamwork and communication, along with a whole host of new skills required for working backstage.
Members do not need any prior experience or training and are encouraged to book a trial session. “Paint clothes” or something you can wear that is ok to get dirty will be required as well as suitable footwear.
We are located on the same estate as Buxtons Lawnmower shop on the A34 between Cannock and Stafford.
The postcode for a sat nav is ST19 5RP.
As you pull on to the estate from the A34, immediately via left (signposted “Coppice Farm”), go through the large cream gate and turn left over the speed bumps. We are located in Unit 7a.
You will be able to drop off and pick up on the area outside outside. Please be mindful of other drivers turning in the area.
