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.
