What’s the “Men’s Shed” all about?
The Mosman Men‘s Shed has been established to provide a ‘shed substitute’ for ‘downsizers’ who may no longer have access to their own shed or work-space they can call their own. Let’s face it, most blokes need a shed!
The Mosman Men’s Shed provides a safe, supportive and friendly space for men of all ages to gather socially, work, teach, learn and seek fellowship with other likeminded people.
You don’t have to have a skill like woodworking or metalwork, just bring yourself and a willingness to participate in what The Shed offers. If you just want to “drop-in” and have a cuppa-and-chat, that’s ok too.
What happens at The Mosman Men’s Shed?
Not all Sheds are the same. At Mosman Men’s Shed you’ll ﬁnd members ﬁxing “stuff”, working on their personal projects or assisting to build something to raise funds or perhaps support a community organisation or even Taronga Zoo.
Instruction on tool usage and processes is available and whatever skills and experience members bring to the Shed are readily shared within the membership.
Safety of members is of utmost importance, so access to The Shed equipment is available after completing an induction and supervised competency checklist, plus there is a voluntary Supervisor on duty whenever The Shed is open.
Our kitchen is complete and fully functional, where lunch and snacks can be prepared by any budding ‘chefs’.
The Mosman Men’s Shed prides itself on providing a safe and congenial learning environment for members, and, judging from feedback received, we are achieving that objective.
What’s in it for me?
The Mosman Men’s Shed provides you with the opportunity to be a useful contributor to the Mosman community, while learning and sharing new skills, making new friends and networking with other men of an inﬁnite variety of backgrounds and experiences.
You will always learn something new at The Shed.
How do I become a member?
