One of Mepal Makers’ Workspaces
A Sample of the Equipment Available and Projects Undertaken
Mepal Makers specifically aim to reach out to older single men in the rural community who are not well served by other organisations – the Men’s Shed approach of fostering links in the community between generations through learning practical skills.
Mepal Makers also run computer courses and provide facilities to enable those unfamiliar with the internet to gain confidence and skills.
What to Expect?
Mepal Makers ask that people complete a membership form which can be found on their website. This asks for a little information about you including what you’re interested in doing or making and whether you bring any skills with you which could be shared with other members. Once registered, you can then book sessions in the workshop.
You will be shown around and may need to complete training on some of the equipment.
If you are offering support or need help with something in particular, you can be matched with someone.
