The MENZ SHED NAENAE started in January 2009 in temporary premises behind the Full of Beans Cafe. This became too expensive and we shared with the Shed in Wainuiomata for a year before reaching our final resting place in mid 2012 in a custom-built Shed inTreadwell St, Naenae.

This provided 126 sq m of concrete floor space and in late 2016 we completed an extension to increase this to a total of 210 sq m.

Initially we set up with a full range of wood-working equipment, mostly donated, and with the extension we have been able to start building up a range of metal-working gear. We also have nine wood lathes as we are the venue for the Guild practical activities which include the monthly turning seminars, monthly carving group and the furniture/general wood-working group.

At present there are about 100 people using the Shed each month for some activity or other, including a number of groups and individuals with disabilities. All are welcome and we have some keen women too.

As a result, we have now increased our opening hours to each weekday and several evenings. (Tuesday to Friday mornings, 9am to 12; Monday afternoon from 1.30pm to 3 and there is a learners' group from 7 to 9 pm). Specialised Guild groups meet at other times.
