Men’s & Women’s Shed is part of local charity Footprints in the Community. Footprints in the Community started in 2011 and now run a number of innovative projects from their offices at 10 Queen Street in Redcar, each of which aims to reduce poverty and isolation in Redcar and the surrounding area.
Men’s Shed is one of Footprints’ projects and is also based at Queen Street. It is a woodworking shop for members to work on their own projects in an informal and supportive environment, run by Manager John and a small number of volunteers.
The Men’s & Women’s Shed is currently running mixed sessions from Monday to Thursday 9am-2pm. To ensure social distancing, the number of members in the Shed is limited and all sessions must be pre-booked in advance. The first session is free and ongoing membership is £15 per year (pro rata). Each session (of up to five hours) costs £2.50, including tea/coffee.
Anyone is welcome to join, whether they are beginners or more experienced crafters. The Shed is offering free taster sessions during September and October to anyone who wants to visit and find out more. If small groups are interested, Manager John is able to run a tailored beginner course, providing basic training in woodworking skills.
Men’s & Women’s Shed is funded through The People’s Health Trust.
