The Red Shed was officially opened on Thursday 13 August with an unconventional "ribbon" cutting by Mayor Bill Spragg in the presence of approximately thirty members of the community. Attendees were entertained with examples of projects being undertaken, a wood turning demonstration, and the Mayor's official launch using a drop saw in place of the traditional scissors.
The Red Shed is a community space where anyone can come to talk, design, and create new projects using a number of donated tools and appliances. Projects already underway include street planter boxes and a book week model for the Uraidla Primary School, and residents are encouraged to bring their own projects to the Shed for the advice and suggestions of other attendees. Short courses on DIY, wood turning and furniture restoration are also in the pipeline.
The Red Shed is currently open one morning a week, with a view to expand as demand grows.
