Goldfinger Academy

The Goldfinger Academy exists to enhance our community’s career opportunities and well being through teaching woodworking and craft.

Our programmes

We share the joy of making through in-school woodworking courses, free career guidance and traineeship programmes, and craft classes for our North Kensington community. We run three programmes throughout the year: Manufacto, Future Makers and Soulcraft.
