Wood lived in Manchester before taking up the position of Headmaster of Penzance School of Art, taking over from William Henry Knight in 1916. For four years he successfully built up the school being one of the most highly respected art teachers in the west of England. In The Studio magazine of 1919, vol. 78, an advertisement shows that Wood was assisting Stanhope Forbes at the Newlyn School of Painting, by instructing in landscape painting, etching and outdoor sketching classes. Wood resigned from Penzance School of Art in 1920. In that year he designed the Lelant War Memorial.
