About our shed

About Us

The Cranbourne Community workshop was completed and officially opened by the Mayor, Councillor Kevin Bradford on  9th November 2006.

This was a model partnership with The Rotary Club of Cranbourne, The City of Casey and the Cranbourne Community House.

Members of Rotary and Community House staff donated hundreds of volunteer hours to complete this project. Rotary was able to secure local goods, services and trades at nominal or no cost.

The Community were invited to buy a brick to offset the cost and also be a part of the history.

The project took just over a year to complete and will become a state of the art workshop.

The idea was based on the “Men’s Shed” to encourage older males to use the space to meet, socialise, have a tinker and perhaps mentor young people in our community.

Men's Shed Program

Our “Mens Shed” program runs during the weekdays. The men complete their own projects as well as making toys and other products for sale to the public.

Come along and join with the men for some fun, activity, chat, laughter or to work on your own project. The workshop is equipped with tools and ideas.

The workshop may also be used for our Leadlighting Classes and Hebel Stone Sculpture Classes.

Positive impacts


"I've found a great group of mates"

Mateship is an important pillar of every Men’s Shed – first and foremost the shed is a place for men to knock about with a group of like-minded mates.


“I give back to the community”

Men’s Sheds are vital community investments delivering programmes and activities that foster community spirit and contribute to building a more inclusive Australia.

Health & Wellbeing

“My health and wellbeing is better because I'm a Shedder”

Many shedders experience improved mental health outcomes. Men (and women) involved at their local Shed report increased self-esteem through participation and learning new skills; de-stigmatisation of experiencing mental health and de-stigmatisation of prevalent social issues related to mental health.

Watch — More than just a shed

The Australian Men’s Shed Association (AMSA) is the national service provider supporting more than 1,200 Men’s, Women’s and Community Sheds and is recognised as one of Australia’s largest male-based community development organisations.

AMSA was established in 2007 by a collection of Australian independent community-based Men’s Sheds to represent, support and promote the Men’s Shed movement. It was founded on the principle of sharing information between sheds and those communities wishing to establish and operate a Men’s Shed. It acts as a central hub for information exchange.
