Can you crowdsource a wood burner for sheddie Ivan Pope’s shed?

New Sheddie and artist Ivan Pope emailed me to say

“I’ve been building a shed on my allotment entirely out of reclaimed materials. Now I’m running crowdfunding project to put a tiny woodburning stove in it for the winter. I think this is probably the first shed realated crowdfunding project.”

anyway here is some info on the idea.

In addition to the woodburner I need a load of insulating sheets for inside the walls. And a chimney. And that’s it. Toasty. I’ve kept the rewards simple and cost low so you can all chip in. I know you want to.

How I need you to help

Why? When I started the shed I decided it was going to be built entirely from found materials. I can’t find these things in a skip (well, I probably would in the end, but that might take years and winter is drawing in). So I’m calling on the crowd to take this shed to the next level.

The shed is a communal mission. Everyone who contributes will get an invite to the first Open Allotments Party next May in addition to the art I’ll be sending out.

not only do you help Ivan stay warm – you can get some original art work for your efforts.

A great idea – and I have pledged, so hope he reaches his goal.
