Booking the Wool Shed

You can see and feel the different stages of shorn New Zealand wool when The Wool Shed visits your school. It’s a converted shipping container packed with woolly resources.

North Island

The Wool Shed has been booked out for most of 2019. However, we do have a few spaces still available in Term 4 should your school like to squeeze in a visit before the end of the year. The Wool Shed will be based in the lower North Island during that time. Bookings are now welcome for 2020, from term 1 through to 4. Please book early so we can start to schedule these dates in the coming weeks.

South Island

The Wool Shed experience has been extremely popular with South Island schools. In fact we are booked out for the whole of 2019, and are now taking bookings for terms 1 to 4 of 2020. Let us know if your school would like to host The Wool Shed.

You can secure a visit to your school in 2020 by completing the following booking form. We will come back to you with updates and delivery information once travel dates are confirmed.

The Wool Shed – North Island – Red
The Wool Shed – South Island – Blue

Things to note

Thanks to our generous sponsor PGG Wrightson Wool, The Wool Shed comes to your school at no charge.

The Wool Shed will remain at your school for one to two weeks.

Visiting The Wool Shed

The Wool Shed is designed for intermediate students but teachers are welcome to share the experience with other students as well. Parents and community are also welcome, if you wish to open The Wool Shed up to them.

We recommend nine students and a teacher visit at any time. It’s a small space and we think a small group will be able to effectively share resources. Please do not have the children in The Wool Shed without adult supervision.

The world would be a better place wrapped in wool.

Back as far as 1480, wool has been used in tennis balls and many tennis balls sold today have a wool felt coating – usually green – including those used at Wimbledon. This gives them bounce and the ability to absorb and release water. It just goes to show wool has many applications.
