Activist Craftsman Educator

connecting MIND HEART HANDS since 1989

Hello I’m Tom Roche and welcome to my website

I have two passions in life – woodwork and bringing the sustainability story to life for school children through my development education projects. I wish to pass on my knowledge and skills so I am offering a number of practical courses for all age groups here in my workshop in Rhode.

Why not give me a call on 086 8049389 and we can have a chat about what’s on offer.
