Over the last few months several members of The Shed have been up-cycling a variety of items. Great to see and far better than “the throw away” culture we seem to be living in.

Taking a broken guitar and turning it into a Bluetooth speaker with LED string lights for the guitar strings.

If you have any broken or old musical instruments, think outside the box - it could be turned into anything more useful!

A refurbished chair

If you need ideas then come and see us and maybe one of our very creative members can help.

An old bedroom chair beautifully upholstered to look like new. The material coming from a set of curtains is able to match the bedroom curtains and decoration.

What to do with those old pairs of jeans? Don’t throw them out! Make a unique tote bag or an apron to give them a second life.

An old yew tree stump taken from one of our members' gardens. Cleaned, sealed and polished then one of our other members turned it into a one-off table lamp.

We have also held several workshops recently – leather work, card making, planter making. It’s a chance to introduce new skills to all our members.

If you would like an opportunity to work on your own projects or take part in any of our workshops come and visit The Shed. Become a member and join our wonderful community project.
