What we're about

I want to set up a group of people who want to make things. This group is open to all adults regardless of experience or knowledge. The plan is to have weekly meetups to encourage and learn from each other. I have recently built a workshop that I feel could be used more. We meet once a week on a Thursday evening but if another time during the week is more suit able for you, we can arrange that.

I have tools for metal working including a forge and anvils for blacksmithing and a metal lathe, plus kit for welding and grinding. For woodwork wood turning and other crafts, I have saws, sanders, drills, etc. There are opportunities to make lots of different things. Don't worry if you haven't made anything before, come and give it a try. I probably have the materials you need for any project. I have basic metal supplies, all sorts of wood from ply construction timbers to wood still in the round (trees) most of which has come from places where it is just being thrown away.

People have made all sorts of things from wooden bowls, bird houses, garden benches, mallets, wooden swords, metal flowers. Everyone is enjoys seeing what each other is making and learning from each other and coming up with a whole list of ideas for their next project.
