Marquee - a virtual shed

Marquee – a virtual shed

The “Shed” started as a workbench made out of a repurposed concrete shutter, pallets and some fence rail. The Mark II version sees the bench protected from the elements by a concertina marquee, the tarp of which we take down when the really big southerlies are blowing.

Being under canvas hasn’t stopped us from being involved in a bunch of projects including:

  • Making a mud kitchen for a community preschool,
  • creating planter boxes for a church community garden,
  • crafting macrocarpa benches for an inner-city recovery project, and
  • pre-fabricating raised planter beds for Freeville Primary’s contribution to the citywide Avon-Okataro renewal initiative.

We are a diverse group of blokes who want to pick up skills, support each other and contribute to our community. Mondays from 11.30ish till 2.30 is our general workshop time with other specific projects happening during the week.
