It's been a busy start to the New Year at The Shed. Our members have been repairing, upcycling, and making.

A lighthouse model all the way from Devon and standing approximately 1m tall has been carefully renovated using as much as possible of the original materials. A great and unique project – well done Ali!

A wonderful garden bench renovation by George – replacing the old slats with new teak ones, it will now last for many years to come.

A grandfather clock built from scratch has been a fantastic upcycling project. After repairing the clock mechanism and setting up the pendulum to give accurate timing, Mark then made the clocks casing from upcycled wood. Great workmanship!

A Jackson Pollock inspired canvas artwork by Jann – great colours and interpretation. These were also upcycled canvases that were going to the local tip!

A clock, painting and lamp

An upcycled empty gin bottle lamp complete with matching shade and flex was a great project to work on. I’m sure there’ll be more to follow.
