Rotherhithe Shed

Mondays from 10am – 2pm and Thursdays from 1pm – 5pm at London Bubble Theatre, Elephant Lane, London SE16 4JD

For older folks with skills to share and time on their hands…

If it’s broken – fix it!
If you want it – make it!
If you’re thirsty – drink it
If you have time – visit!

Set up in partnership by London Bubble Theatre Company and Time & Talents, the Shed brings together older people (55+) in Southwark to put their practical skills to good use – fixing, making, whittling, drilling, sawing and general tinkering.

Sessions are held in a well equipped workshop where participants can work together on a range of practical activities and creative projects. All levels welcome! Skilled artists and technical experts are available to support you as you create and experiment with new skills. Your ideas will always be strongly encouraged and developed here. 

Rotherhithe Shed is a good opportunity for anyone looking for social and creative experiences; including a chance to make new friends, to experience the camaraderie of teamwork or simply to put practical skills to good use. So if you have something that needs mending or maintaining – be it a wobbly chair or a squeaky bike – feel free to bring it along! And even if you don’t, we’ll soon find you a fun project to work on!

Members are welcome to drop in and out at any point during our opening hours*.
Refreshments provided.  Free to attend.
