Our mobile “Wool Sheds” travel the length of New Zealand teaching primary and intermediate school children about the wonders of wool. Kids learn about wool processes, innovative thinking, design, and technology and they’ll have lots of fun along the way.
We have two converted shipping containers travelling to primary and intermediate schools across the North and South Islands of New Zealand.
These containers spend one to two weeks with each school during term time. We provide your teachers with a comprehensive set of workbooks prior to the container arriving to help your school plan your time with the container. Note: The containers do not come with a wool educator – we leave that to you as you know how your school likes to learn.
We handle all the logistics including shipping to and from your school. We’ll help you choose the best site on your grounds.
If you are a teacher or principal, register your interest and one of our team will be in touch to let you know when the Wool Shed is available in your area.

Inspiring our children with knowledge about wool is our goal. If wool is going to be a part of their future, they need to start learning about the fibre early. The Campaign for Wool is a not-for-profit charity and this initiative is one of the many things we do to ensure a bright future for New Zealand’s wool industry.
We've done the planning for you!
The containers are packed to the brim with wool resources and activity planners to help teachers direct learning for their classes. You can download some activity ideas and resources below. Having the Wool Shed at your school is an easy way to get children out of the classroom learning new life skills.
We have a full activity book that travels with the Wool Shed but we’ve curated some interesting fact sheets to get you in the wool vibe! These fact sheets are also useful for school projects about wool.
