Studio in the Woods

Studio in the Woods is an education and research project that was established in 2005.


Every year a team of architects are joined by a number of other practitioners and academics in leading workshops with students over 3 or 4 days in summer time. 


In 2018, Studio in the Woods was joined by Momentum in the Wyre Forest. which was hosted by the Wyre Community Land Trust at Ruskin Land to explore future uses for the timber from the Wyre Forest.


The results included an 18m cantilevered Belfast truss out of small section oak, a series of musical ‘instruments’, a ‘room for a tree’ from curved timber, a ‘nest’ from waste timber from the forest floor designed as a place of enclosure within the woodland and more.
