We have combined our existing Electronics Club with other types of activities for all ages, and all abilities. These include: Electronics, Woodwork, Metalwork, 3D Printing, and all in-between.
Frampton Community Projects have, and always will, strive to help local people explore new activities, or encourage knowledge to be shared between generations. The Makers Shed is no different!
We found whilst running the electronics club that it was not giving our members the real benefit of realising their potential by narrowing our remit when so much more is involved. A DVD player is an electrical item, but the case and how it all fits together is just as important as the circuity involved, to make an effective, angelic item which you would place in a public place.
What if you wanted to make a shelving cabinet that lights up at the back when it is dark? This would require knowledge of woodwork, and electronics. Perhaps you like speed and would like to build an electric go-kart, where metalwork and electronics would be needed.
The Makers Shed has evolved to meet the needs of all of these scenarios for local people to get together and build individually, or help others, or even both.
We hope The Makers Shed will be ready by October 2019 and will be equipped with most of the basic equipment, such as a Mitre Saw, Welder, Metal Cutter, Drills, and a 3D Printer, with more equipment being added as the shed grows.
The Makers Shed will be open Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday each week from 10am – 3pm.
