The Carpentry Club describes itself as a not-for-profit public maker space specialising in woodwork. It is a curated, safe and social community workshop where professional and hobby woodworkers can use the tools, make a mess and noise, learn or teach new skills and most importantly, make whatever they want.
The Geezers have a particular interest in the Carpentry Club as their advice was sought on setting it up and the workshop is reserved two days a week for The Bethnal Green Men’s Shed. Men’s Sheds offer a relaxed space in which gents can be social and productive. They provide an alternative space in the daytime for blokes who might otherwise be at home or in the pub, bookies, cafe, church or mosque.
