Make:Shed is Back (in real life)
Make:Shed are happy to be back in ‘real life’, opening our doors every Thursday evening and welcoming members new and old.
After many zooms sessions, we are reintroducing our weekly creative sessions at the Hub. For the time being, spaces are limited, so be sure to book ahead by sending us quick message!
For those unfamiliar with Make:Shed, it’s a place where 18-35 year olds, who live within the Frome area, can get together, learn new skills, and create. The workshop space is based in the Remakery in the Welshmill Hub; it’s one of the many wonderful projects to be born from our Start Up course. Once a week, young people can come and explore woodwork, metalwork, art, crafts and much more. We want these sessions to be available to everybody, that’s why they’re completely free! All you have to do is book.
Upcoming sessions include:
27.05.21 – Planters from Pallets
03.06.21 – Green Woodworking
10.06.21 – Wet Felting
17.06.21 – Handbuild Pottery
Since its opening in 2019, the Shed have grown a truly strong, creativity community. We’ve hosted a diverse mix of creative and practical workshops and invited many skilled artists and workers to share their craft. The programme is very much led by what the students want to do. Many long term members of Make:Shed are now leading the sessions, passing down the skills they’ve learnt at the Shed. It’s a great way for them to learn and share skills.
At the Hub, you’ll have access to lots of handy tools, and you can also get support to sell what you make, whether that’s online or at the Frome Independent when it restarts. It’s a chance to get hands-on, create something physical, and most importantly, be together. Make:Shed Programmes Lead Cassie Morris says, ‘’Yes it’s about making things, but it’s also a place for people to come to have a change of space and socialise. It’s been running every week for two years now; it feels like the heartbeat of Edventure.’’
