Mens Shed / Community Workshop

The shed is located out the back of the Linwood Resource Centre – Te Whare Taonga Nga Iwi Katoa – a community house located at 332 Linwood Ave, Christchurch. The LRC runs community gardens, sewing groups, morning teas and provides a really friendly place for people to drop in and connect with their community again.

Being part of a community house gives us lots of opportunities to find ways to help out locals, but most importantly make use of the all day cuppa that the house runs. People from the house come to use the workshop, and we have a great place to hold meetings and set the world to rights.

We welcome people of all skill levels and can provide training to get you up and running if you haven’t done any wood work before.

People work on shared projects (like planter boxes for the community), individual projects (everything from model ships to furniture, to camper van fit outs, to wood turning to….) or just turn up to have a yarn and a cuppa.

We run introduction to wood work groups every so often and also host groups coming in to do wood work.
