About Play Wooden:
Play Wooden CIC is an ethical and ecological company that dreams to
re-introduce curiosity and experimental exploration back into our
community through the use of wooden games.
We bring play sourced from esoteric games from all around the world.
By un-covering these games lost over the generations, we start to
remind players of the beauty of simplicity and move away from the
hungry consumerist mentality that so often forgets to honour the
journey our material goods take from source to satisfaction.
Our activities are developed to sensitise and raise awareness of
alternative creative wooden ecological games. With the aim of creating
togetherness, challenging our body and mind through concrete wooden
games, to sense and feel the nature through the wooden games
