About Us

On the momentous occasion of April 21, 2022, Inspire Focus proudly launched its groundbreaking project, "Inspire Focus Woodworks," with the gracious support of the esteemed Mayor of Thetford and other distinguished guests who graced our inauguration. This extraordinary initiative aims to revolutionize woodworking education and craftsmanship while fostering a vibrant community of artisans and enthusiasts.

At the core of "Inspire Focus Woodworks" lies a deep-rooted commitment to passing down the time-honored art of traditional woodworking techniques. We firmly believe that the wisdom and skills handed down through generations should not be lost to the passage of time. Therefore, our project seeks to preserve and celebrate the rich heritage of woodworking, inspiring new generations to embrace the craft with passion and dedication.


Yet, we also recognize the significance of embracing modern technologies in today's ever-evolving world. Alongside the traditional methods, "Inspire Focus Woodworks" endeavors to introduce participants to the cutting-edge advancements in woodwork machinery and Computer Numerical Control (CNC) technology. By blending the best of both worlds, we aim to equip our students with a diverse skill set that empowers them to innovate and create with limitless possibilities.

Our unwavering commitment to inclusivity drives us to open our doors wide to young people, veterans, and individuals from all walks of life. We firmly believe that woodworking can serve as a transformative vehicle for personal growth, fostering creativity, problem-solving, and perseverance. 

By creating a welcoming and supportive environment, we strive to break down barriers and create a diverse community of woodworkers who learn from each other and celebrate the unique perspectives that each individual brings.

Moreover, "Inspire Focus Woodworks" is not only about imparting knowledge but also about providing a platform for those passionate about woodworking to take their craft to new heights. Our well-equipped facilities are not limited to students alone; they are also available for rental to aspiring woodworkers who dream of honing their skills and developing their work further. We understand that access to tools and workspace can be a significant challenge, and we aim to bridge that gap, empowering individuals to pursue their creative visions with ease.


As we forge ahead with our mission, we recognize that staying connected with our community is paramount. We are committed to keeping everyone informed about our projects, workshops, and upcoming events. We encourage everyone to stay tuned to our website, as we continuously update our projects page and web shop. Our web shop will offer an array of meticulously crafted products, and customers will have the privilege of ordering bespoke woodwork items tailored to their specific desires.

Behind "Inspire Focus Woodworks" and all our endeavors stands the unwavering dedication and hard work of our remarkable SIMPLE Norfolk volunteers. Their tireless efforts over the years have been the driving force behind this dream come true. We are eternally grateful for their passion and commitment to making a positive impact on the community.
