About our shed
Langwarrin Men's Shed is a place for men to go and spend time doing woodwork, metalwork and leadlighting projects and enjoy a cuppa and a chat with friends and mates. It can be a safety valve to release the pressures of work and family, providing a haven where a bloke or veteran can maintain and repair his sense of identity.
Established in 2012, and originally based in the Scout Hall within the Lloyd Park reserve, we moved into our own purpose built shed in 2015.
We are a not-for profit organisation under the banner of the Australian Men's Shed Association. We have been involved in community projects and also raise money for charities through our famous 'sausage sizzles'.
Currently we have over 90 members who participate in a range of various activities, including:
- Lead Lighting,
- Cookery Classes,
- Computer Classes,
- Bike Riding,
- with more to come in due course.

— "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.
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.
