Crafts & Gardens

Broadly doing some Crafts activity, including gardening.

Creative Crafts

Tabor Court, Beech Hill SG6 4YJ

Our members are working on lacemaking, felting, embroidery, long stitch tapestry, decorative needlework and modelling clay. 

We hope to introduce crafts such as stencilling, card-making and weaving and would encourage anybody who has experience in these to come and  join us, so we can share ideas and skills. 

No need to book in advance; we would love to meet you.


When you arrive press the button for the manager and she'll let you in.

Men in Sheds

Men’s sheds are community spaces for like-minded people to connect, converse, create and gain a renewed sense of purpose and belonging. The activities are often similar to those carried out in garden sheds, but for groups of men to share together – a place to pursue practical interests at leisure, to share and practise skills and knowledge, enjoy making and mending, whilst at the same time making social connections and friendship building (see for more information).

The shed will be whatever members want it to be and the group is currently looking for a venue. This could be an empty office, unit, Portakabin, warehouse, garage or outbuilding but it needs to be able to store the tools and equipment needed for the group’s activities, which might include woodworking, electronics, small engineering projects, repairing, restoring and recycling/converting scrap into useful objects or even use the space for model railways and other hobbies.

If you feel you would like to become involved in the Men In Sheds project do come along - we are a friendly group that meets on  the second Wednesday of each month, or get in touch if you are interested, or if you can suggest a possible venue for a ’shed’ in Letchworth, please get in touch with the group contact.
