Join a Shed
Put your skills to use for the benefit of your community, make new friends and learn new skills
Sheds have traditionally been for older retired men looking for something to do after retirement though more younger men and women are getting involved as more people want to develop DIY skills, try their hands at something different or meet new people.
Inside the sheds you’ll find people working with wood, carpentry, carving, furniture repairs and anything else they might want to try their hand at, after all, the tools needed are right there, but you’ll also find art classes, singing groups, bicycle groups, bike and vehicle repairs and all sorts of other activities. Each shed is reflective of its members and its community. There really is something for everyone.
Whether you have existing skills or want to learn something new your local shed is a place you can go and expand your skills or learn a new one.
Don’t assume you need to already know how to use the tools. You need to want to learn but you’ll always find existing members happy to teach and guide you.
We have sheds that are both men and women, or have times set aside for women to use the equipment and yes, some sheds are men-only (it’s their choice).
Members are from all walks of life and professions. They come in looking to learn something new or refresh old skills. Sheds are for people wanting to do something on their days off and for people looking to develop new friendships and give back to the community.
