At the Thrive2020 conference of Mon 10 Oct 2016, Patrick Abrahams spoke about the Men’s Sheds initiative which has over 350 sheds in the UK, 900+ in Australia and more beyond.
These ‘sheds’ are workspaces where men (and women) can gather to build and repair projects for themselves or others in the community. There’s also a emphasis on tea drinking! 🙂
It overlaps hugely with what we’re planning for Makerspace Guernsey so his talk has given us renewed vigour to get a venue sorted out and get going. Thank you Patrick!
