Rotherhithe Shed is a new project for older men based on the very successful Australian Men’s Shed movement.
Set up in partnership by London Bubble Theatre Company and Time & Talents, it aims to bring together older men to put their practical skills to good use – fixing, making, whittling, drilling, sawing and generally tinkering.
Sessions are held fortnightly on Thursday afternoons, in a well equipped workshop where participants can work together on a range of practical activities. Skilled artists and technical experts are available to support the participants, and project ideas are strongly encouraged and developed. If you have something that needs mending or maintaining, be it a wobbly chair or a squeaky bike bring it along. Or if you want to help make and paint the new sign for the shed, or just make the tea – you are welcome.
Rotherhithe Shed is a good opportunity for anyone looking for social and creative experiences, including a chance to make new friends, to experience the camaraderie of working with other men or simply putting practical skills to good use. It’s free, it’s participative, and it’s open to all. Whether you are someone with no skills or highly skilled, there is a role for you at Rotherhithe Shed.
