The Communal carpentry shop is a social venture initiated by Ofer Cohen, a lawyer by profession and a member of Kfar Vradim’s local council. This creative project was developed together with the local council, the community centers association and the Galila Foundation, resulting in the undertaking of a unique project – the Communal woodwork (carpentry) shop.
The renovation work on the space located adjacent to the community’s youth center, was carried out by many volunteers, teens, city council and community center members. The carpentry shop will also function as a meeting place for local artists and amateur carpenters and will be used as a working space for artists as well as for carpentry workshop classes for all age groups.
The Galila Foundation assisted in the venture’s creation and purchased the equipment required for its completion.
