We are teaming up with Gary Thompson of Wild Earth Creative Education to set up a few workshops at the York Men's Shed this summer.
Gary has been a secondary design technology teacher and art teacher for over thirty years working in a number of schools nationally, and latterly as a deputy headteacher. Gary left mains stream education in 2017 to set up Wild Earth Creative Education with the aim of sharing mhis passion for a wide range of crafts and combining this with a love of the outdoors. Gary offers workshops in traditional woodcraft skills as well as a range of other creative activities.
Check out his website for more information regarding activities.
The York Men's Shed is a local community organisation set up to provide a place where men can gather to work on projects or socialize with fellow members.
We are now opening on Tuesday mornings and afternoons.. Other days can be arranged. As a covid precaution most of our sessions are held outside and when in the shed we wear masks and limit numbers.
In addition to the formal sessions we often have social outings to visit pubs and coffee shops in York.
Following the delivery of the Mancroft picnic table, we have completed three more tables. The members have just completed a table for the cafe at Hull Road Park run by Choose 2 Youth.
