Pic3Men’s sheds have been established for a range of reasons. At the heart lies some common interest that is shared, and often involved activities built around arts, crafts and technical skills – the kind of things done in the backyard shed.


Rather than work on those interests alone, a community shed introduces a social interaction among the participants that is an important part of well being. The interest of the group develops from that interest and copious coffee to expand the range of things that they do.
