Men & Women in Sheds, Loughborough

If you are 50+ and interested in learning or sharing skills in a workshop environment (and meeting and chatting with some very nice people!) then Men & Women in Sheds is for you!

Men & Women in Sheds is located at:
Charnwood Shed, Unit 9, Oaks Industrial Estate,
Festival Drive, Loughborough. LE11 5 XN

Due to the latest lockdown the Shed will be shut again
until 2 December or whenever the restrictions are lifted.

We had a brief return during October with obvious precautions in place and it was great to see everyone again and catch up and to get back to some of those projects. Start planning for December – maybe just enough time to complete some Christmas presents!
Keep safe and keep happy!

If you have any questions please call 01509 211603 or email the Shed co-ordinator Owen on Owen.Jones@ageukleics.org.uk


Footrest made by Trish & Dierdra

Earlier this year, before lockdown, Trish & Diedra made this smart foot-rest to raise funds for the Shed. “We’re looking forward to the reopening of the Shed.  We have now been going for almost 3 years and miss the company and support we get from all the wonderful Shed community”. More >>

Woodworking
Wood-working and carpentry
Pottery and ceramics
Upholstery & furniture repairs
Gardening

We’re a motley bunch from all backgrounds and abilities. Some have been wood-working all their lives and others are complete beginners. Everyone helps each other.

There’s no fixed schedule or classes. Everyone can do their own project, whether it’s making a simple bird-box, a rocking-horse (requires lots of patience!), garden planters, toys, furniture repairs or creating a fantasy garden combining pottery, wood-working and gardening skills.

If you’d like to give it a try contact 01509 211603 or email the Shed co-ordinator Owen on Owen.Jones@ageukleics.org.uk
