Welcome to Shed Therapy

Shed Therapy aims to teach and popularize green woodworking and bread baking.

From whittling a wooden butter-spreader to turning bowls on the foot-powered lathe or hand-forging simple tools, we can get you started with our courses and demonstrations.

Since folk generally come out of our sheds happier than when they went in, we call these activities Shed Therapy. It is cheaper than other forms of therapy, plus you have some tangible things to show for your time.

If you like doing stuff in your own or someone else’s shed, consider yourself a shed-therapist. (There are no exams to pass!)

“Having someone with years of experience who is also a brilliant teacher is just a total game-changer”Steve Tomlin

  • “Joined up thinking. Lots of little bits of information that suddenly pulled together and made a lot more sense. And the confidence to hit things harder. “
