Event Details

Land of Oak & Iron are excited to host the next of our regular ‘Meet the Maker‘ events at the Heritage Centre in Winlaton Mill.  Our next Meet the Maker event is with Ryton Men’s Shed.

Ryton Men’s Shed is a not for profit organisation specifically open to men from the areas of Gateshead and the Tyne Valley.  They offer a variety of activities based around things you would do in your garden shed or garage. This usually involves producing a finished item either individually or together as a group in our workshop.  By making items for themselves or to sell, members are given a sense of purpose and achievement.

The idea behind Men’s Shed is to give men the opportunity to feel good about themselves, be productive, contribute towards their community and most importantly make friends.  This in turn promotes good health and well-being.

“Our mission is to promote friendship and community spirit by giving people  the opportunity to get together with like minded individuals.”

Come along to the Heritage Centre on Saturday 9th July, 10am – 4pm to meet some members of the Men’s Shed in person, buy some of their work and find out more about what they do.

Some of the Men’s Shed creations are also available to purchase for a limited period in the Heritage Centre shop for the 2 weeks running up to their in person event day.

‘Meet the Maker’ will be outside under cover of the gazebo unless the weather is cold/rainy – in which case it will be situated in the foyer area inside the Heritage Centre.


(Saturday) 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
