Sheddies name


Shed name

The shed with the chandelier

Selfbuild or off the shelf shed?

We had a local shed builder built it.

Why have you got a shed? uses etc

I am an artist so its my studio. I was taking over the house with my projects… so it was definately necessary. The shed has since been used for projecting movies, recording music, band practice, sleepovers… a place where friends have sat and had a chance to think and dream.

How would you describe your shed?

It started out as my studio but it has expanded into a virtual focus for conversations on creativity, so that people might be encouraged to go and create there own “shed”and if not start in the corner of their kitchen, bedroom and make room in their life to create what they need to be making and doing.
