Thornbury Men’s Shed, a not-for-profit local organisation, is financed by membership subscriptions and sales of repaired and recycled items.
A Men’s Shed is a larger version of the typical man’s shed in the garden – a place where he feels at home and pursues practical interests with a high degree of autonomy. Men’s Sheds offers this to a group of such men where members share the tools and resources they need to work on projects of their own choosing at their own pace and in a safe, friendly and inclusive venue. They are places of skill-sharing and informal learning, of individual pursuits and community projects, of purpose, achievement and social interaction.
Our Men’s Shed activities may involve carpentry, metalworking, bike repair, gardening equipment repair, electronics, tool renovation, model engineering and vehicle restoration. Reclamation, reuse and restoration will feature strongly then some say that is true of the men too!
Whatever activities are pursued, the essence of a Shed is not a building, but the network of relationships between the members.
