Commissions and Partnerships

 

To fundraise and keep the shed running, we take on commissions from the local community, schools, and charity organizations. We can also host workshops for community groups and care homes. All money raised goes back into the running of the project.

If you would like to commission the shed or would like to partner with us, please contact the project officer, Emily, by emailing emily.willey@ageukbexley.org.uk.

 

Commissions

Many of our shed members are from trade backgrounds or experienced wood workers. They can take on the challenge of most bespoke wood working projects! Previous commissions include:

  • North West Kent Countryside Partnership- Bird boxes, nature trail lecterns and woodland signs.

  • Dartford Little Library- Book Swap

  • Christ Church Erith- Collection boxes and wood crosses

  • Members of the public- Planters, tables, rabbit hutches and much more!

 

If you would like to enquire about commissioning the shed for a project, please contact the project officer on the email listed above.

To get an idea of what design you would like, please send any inspiration images and sizes along with your enquiry. Please note items are collection only from our workshop. Items can take up to 8 weeks to complete depending on ongoing shed projects.

 

 

Workshops

We are in the process of developing workshops delivered by our shed members to community groups and care homes.

This enables our members to teach and pass on their skills to the wider community. Moreover, for care homes, the workshops provide peer support for male residents. We can teach basic woodwork skills or work alongside your organization to make items such as bug hotels, bird boxes and other garden items. Please see this our gallery pages, to see workshops we have delivered in the past!

 

If you are interested in working in partnership or commission the Shed to teach mobile wood workshops sessions, please get in touch with our Project Officer.
