About our shed
The Kapunda Shed opened on 5th December 2011. The purpose of the shed opening was to get people out of their homes either for a cup of coffee and a chat, personal projects or community projects.
Come and be involved in community projects, personal projects, knitting, crocheting or just come for a chat and a cup of coffee.
We have sections devoted to wood working, metal work, welding, car maintenance, and more, we are currently working on a sit and chat lounge area to be completed in the near future.
We also mentor and tutor students from local high schools and assist NDIS clients with their carers to undertake projects.
At the shed both ladies and gentlemen are welcome, there is a specified day for ladies only on Thursdays.

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.
