Kids' Shed

We mentioned the marvellous Out of the Ordinary project The Shed last week but there's now also a Kids' Shed. On March 19 and 20 Out Of The Ordinary will be transforming the former One o’clock Club on Shacklewell Street, North Brick Lane into a spectacular pop-up kids’ shed, fit for the next generation of makers, fixers, tinkerers and diy enthusiasts: it's not just grown-ups who need space to potter and tools to tinker.

If you can help clean floors, fix shelves, paint walls, draw murals, or make tea, please join them for a glorious weekend of transformation, fun and fulfilment. Children are welcome, refreshments will be provided, and there will be final party to
celebrate on Sunday evening.

The Kids' Shed will run workshops in essential skills such as how to make a rocket from an old Coke bottle, how to design a marshmallow catapult, how to customise your bike and how to fix stuff so cleverly no one will even know you broke it. The Kids' Shed aims to be open in time foor the 2011 Easter Holidays and run an intensive programme from April 11-24, before pausing to recoup before a summer holiday DIY extravaganza. Keep up to date via their Facebook page.

  1. This is lovely. If I had kids, I'd definitely be taking them along.
