ActivSheds

A place to work collaboratively, share skills and learn to build with wood

What is ActivSheds?

ActivSheds is a practical project for people who would like to share knowledge, learn new skills, and pursue hobbies and interests, while contributing to a great community project. It is also somewhere to socialise and share a cuppa.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Enjoy working shoulder to shoulder in our well-equipped sheds, making smaller items such as bird boxes, garden trugs or obelisks, as well as collaborating on bigger projects such as building raised beds and renovating garden furniture. The team have tried their hand at garden sofas made of pallets and a greenhouse made of plastic bottles, not to mention hedgehog homes and a mini Suffolk barn!

In the next phase, ActivGardens are hoping to set up additional mixed-gender sessions. Bespoke sessions can also be booked for groups/ placements.
