Men in Sheds

Men in Sheds is a fully-equipped wood workshop for older men in Leeds. You can drop in anytime on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays to use the facilities completely free of charge, whether you're experienced, want to brush up on your skills, or are completely new to woodwork.

The Shed is more than just a workshop, it’s a space to socialise, share skills and knowledge, or just have a cup of tea and a biscuit.

The Environment and Business Centre, Merlyn-Rees Avenue, Morley, Leeds LS27 9SL. It is open every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10.00am-4.00pm.

Drop in anytime - the kettle is always on!

  • Where possible we use reclaimed or recycled wood, and sometimes make items which can be sold to raise money for local causes or donated to local community projects.
  • The project has been set up mainly for men aged 55 or above, but please ring us to have a chat if you're outside this age group and are interested in coming along.
