Men & Women in Sheds, Loughborough

If you are 50+ and interested in learning or sharing skills in a workshop environment then Men & Women in Sheds is for you!

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

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.

Men-only on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings 9.00am – 1.00pm and Women on Tuesdays 9.00am – 3.00pm (with a few patient chaps to help, advise and generally natter with).

If you’d like to give it a try contact 01509 211603 or email Richard on
