When is a Men’s Shed not a Men’s Shed? When it’s a Community Shed. Moruya CWS is under the umbrella of the Men’s Shed Association but is the only group on the south coast that welcomes women into their membership.
We are located within the grounds of Moruya High School and our shed is open on Wednesdays and Fridays between 9am and 3pm. It is the ideal workspace to create that DIY project with access to professional equipment – woodworking, metalworking and welding. We also do jewellery making and provide assistance for any repair jobs you have. We are open to other interests being introduced.
Our equipment includes welding, metal cutting and shaping and a comprehensive range of woodworking equipment from hand tools to fixed machinery.
Our members include a teacher, carpenter/joiner, biophysicist, recreational pilot, admin, artist, dressmaker and motor mechanic to name a few.
Past projects completed by the team include constructing the stage props for a local theatre company, target frames for the Gun Club, bicycle repairs for the high school, repair and restoration of furniture and community work for local residents. Many members also completed personal DIY projects eg rewiring of window screens, garden art, jewellery, table construction etc.
Annual fees are $25 which gives you access to all the equipment and insurance cover. Join us to learn new skills, get reacquainted with old skills or just have a cuppa and a yarn. So come along – we’d love to see you.
