Its where you can work and chat with your mates
The Camden Town Shed is a club offering a workspace where older people can work on practical projects or follow hobbies with others. People are welcome from anywhere in London. The space was equipped with tools and materials donated by the public or local businesses and is set up mainly for woodworking. The association is run by the members who decide when they come and what they do. We learn from each other and contribute voluntarily to the club’s future. Its free to attend.
The idea draws on the successful Men’s Shed movement in Australia where over 1000 Sheds have formed. It is part of a growing movement in the UK which now has two new Sheds opening every week. There are 450 new Sheds open (Apr. 2018), up from five in mid-2011.
