Shed and facilities
The Picton Men’s Community Shed was established in 2009 and has 35 members. The group operates from a shed with a floor area of 150 square metres, and is well provisioned with hand tools, power tools, woodworking machinery, a metal-turning lathe and welding gear.
Members work on a wide and varied range of activities, some of which include classic boat restoration, knife and tool sharpening, furniture making and repairs, off-site community tasks, propagating plants and gardening and, of course, their own private projects, too.
There is a strong emphasis on men’s health and well-being.
The Shed is open Wednesdays, 9am – 3pm and Saturdays, 9am – 12noon.
The Picton Shed is always keen to attract new members. Visitors to Picton, or those passing through, are encouraged to drop in and look around. You’ll receive a warm welcome.
The Picton Men’s Community Shed is located 2 Market St. Picton.
