About Play Wooden

Play Wooden is a Bristol based Community Interest Company. It is an ethical and ecological company that dreams to nurture curiosity and experimental exploration back into our community through the use of wooden games.

At Playwooden we strongly believe in the power of connecting and learning through play. So many of the ways we do this now, through screens; your iPads or phones, get the brain over stimulated (which is like a way of saying really hyper) when used too much. And can make it hard to concentrate. Our games aim to do the opposite, helping your brain to calm down and focus 🙂

Our games manifest the notion of environmental awareness and respect; from the recycled wood the games are made from, to the people of all backgrounds who gain skills from making them, to the children and adults who, through the senses of wooden play, are opened to a new way to use their minds to learn more about themselves and the world around them. Some of our games are designed for one player taking the individual on a journey of self-adventure and a more intimate understanding of the boundaries and spaces of their minds. While other games encourage leadership and cooperation through the medium of teamwork and participation within a group.

Whether you are playing alone or as a team, all the activities create an environment of self-discovery by stimulating the mind in a healthy way, bringing about a calmness that may even change your perception of reality
