Creating a place where local adults, primarily men, can come to learn, teach, make, share and socialise.
Maxilla Men's Shed - a Community Investment project
Maxilla Men’s Shed has launched in North Kensington to connect local communities with the international Men's Shed movement, creating a place where local adults, primarily men, can come to learn, teach, make, share and socialise.
Maxilla Men’s Shed will provide a number of ways for local people to access a new, fully equipped wood workshop at ACAVA’s Maxilla Studios, located in the former Maxilla Children's Centre. A series of open days will be held during August and a full programme of training and open access sessions (including opportunities for local women) will be launched in September. Over time the ownership and management of Maxilla Men’s Shed will be handed over to the community in 2021. Through the Grenfell Tower Fund, the fit-out costs for the interior of the men’s shed were provided. Amount awarded: £5,599.
