ABOUT STACKWOOD Stackwood is a new creative venue and concept store in Fremantle. It is situated in a former diesel workshop and the Stackwood community encompasses maker's studios, an event space, and a concept store.
Their mission is a simple one: To encourage a more wholesome way of living.
They aim to help residents meet their neighbours and share a nourishing meal. They want people to learn new skills like propagating plants, crafting, cooking and making things in general. They want to invest in useful products that are good for us and good for our environment.
They strongly believe in the value of supporting local producers, makers and service providers, and are part of a vibrant and creative community from which great opportunities can arise from local relationships.
They also foster the community by offering space for meetings and gatherings, as well as hosting free community events like their seasonal food swaps.
Stackwood feel that when you learn a skill you are making an investment, and that this new skill has quite a different value to a purchased product.
Going forward, the Stackwood project is by no means complete. They are planning more community events, a productive garden and many other exciting projects.
They run many interesting and informative workshops during the year and you can check these out here.
