Men in sheds is an idea that originated in Australia and has been shown to provide mental health benefits for older men and women who often feel isolated and lonely. Our shed provides a meeting place, with tools and resources for our members to work on projects at their own pace and in a friendly and inclusive venue. Our shed is a place of skill-sharing and informal learning, of individual pursuits and community projects, of purpose, achievement and social interaction. 

We make a big selection of products, and new ideas are always popping up.  You can see the wide range of items that we make.  Also we make items commissioned by customers, or mend items that need a bit of TLC.
