Wood Shop at Groundswell Marketplace



Join the Wood Shop team throughout the summer and experience the world of woodworking in a fun, collaborative public market as part of the Groundswell Community Marketplace.

This weekly event is held on Granville Island amidst the hub of activity: the centre of Triangle Square, and showcases a number of great community focused businesses.

The market runs every Tuesday until September 19th between 11AM and 4PM and our Wood Shop booth will be open to showcase a selection of handmade pieces constructed using reclaimed and refurbished BC wood, many of which were crafted at one of our Shop Class Sessions.   Visit us select Tuesdays (June 20, July 4, July 25, August 8, August 22, September 5, September 19).

The Wood Shop Co-op’s Custom Groundswell Marketplace Lounge was recently unveiled and is built in collaboration with the Groundswell Social Venture Program Participants.


Our lounge highlights the beautiful and unique pieces as well as stunning wood designs created exclusively for the seasonal marketplace.   Offering visitors a place to congregate, relax and reconnect, it showcases a unique sense of craftsmanship evident in a variety of  functional and comfortable pieces such as a Fir Lam Harvest Table, lath art-style coffee table (made with reclaimed pine and fir trunks), relaxed crate and bench seating (made with reclaimed pine slats).  All items were made as part of our ongoing Education SeriesShop Class Sessions as well as from our Fairwood Home Collection.

Visitors to the Groundswell Community Marketplace Wood Shop lounge interested in an educational class can register on-site by visiting our adjacent booth (and get a promo code for $25 off their Shop Class Session!)
