Why become a member?

Make stuff, Repair & Reuse, Grow & Make Friends

Membership gives you access to the Fressingfield Shed workshop & garden, you can use the machinery, share materials, and start making and sharing your knowledge with others too. Members also benefit from discount pricing on courses. You can get involved with our community projects and do your own projects too.

Membership means joining the shed community - a supportive group of people from Fressingfield and the surrounding villages. We do community projects together, we do our own projects in the workspace, and we hang out finding time for a coffee & a chat. Not everyone knows what they want to do when they join the shed, but everyone finds a warm welcome and a way to get involved. There is a space for everyone so if you have an interest in making or gardening or helping out in the community or just want to get stuck in then come and join the shed!

Become a member of the Shed

Your membership will become active as soon as you pay your £24 annual fee - which you can do via bank transfer, by using our Collctiv link or in person if you prefer.

We are happy to help you find alternatives to online payment just send us a message and we'll be in touch.

While membership fees provide vital income to help us run the shed, our attitude is that no one is excluded on the basis of need, so if you can't afford the membership fee please do get in touch and we can discuss in-kind alternatives.
