    These sessions are for the more experienced ukulele and guitar players. You will probably have an amplifier and a smug expression! 

    John McMillan is an even more experienced Guitar and Uke teacher. He brings extraordinary knowledge (and fun) to all his music classes.

    Obviously the sessions will not all occur as listed as John is human, but we will try to let you know when he will be absent.

    These sessions are for the beginning ukulele player. You will probably have five thumbs and a dubious expression! Don't worry about needing an ukulele - one will be found for you and they are tough and forgiving little beasts (but addictive)

    John McMillan is an experienced Guitar and Uke teacher. He brings extraordinary kindness. tolerance and fun to all his music classes.

    Obviously the sessions will not all occur as listed as John is human, but we will try to let you know when he will be absent.

    These sessions have been going for quite a time but anyone is welcome to join in. There is a beginner session earlier in the day if you are nervous. OR you can sing along using a radio mike and well away from anyone else! If you just want to soak up the ambience you can shake a tambourine. 

    John McMillan is a experienced Guitar and Uke teacher. He brings an easy, fun style (and immense tolerance) to all his music classes.

    Obviously the sessions will not all occur as listed as John is human, but we will try to let you know when he will be absent. 

    Be warned - we may be trying bag-pipe simulations with 3 string guitars.

    Graduates from Ewan's Introductory Leather Workshops (or with an equivalent or greater level of expertise in the craft) have been carrying out Leatherwork Projects  that they undertake with help and supervision from Ewan.

    The Leatherwork Projects activities for 2020 restarted on Wednesday 15 January 2020 - The plan is to continue our Wednesday mornings sessions, undertaking leatherwork projects as proposed by individuals or by the group of "regulars" - graduates of the Introductory Leather Workshop series.

    Projects will include production of a stock of leather items that the Shed can offer for sale at fetes or other major public events. Individuals can also bring in their own projects, or propose other group projects. Ewan will be available for guidance and advice.

    Numbers for these project sessions will be limited to 3 + Euan in the woodwork shed with anyone else having to go to the main shed, due to COVID-19 restrictions. So if you are not already involved approach Ewan and the other leather-workers at one of the session to see if there is any opportunity for you to join up.

    Where individuals bring in their personal projects, they will be charged around cost price for materials (eg leather, buckles, clips, soling etc.) supplied from the SBMS stocks. SBMS will, of course, provide materials for production of SBMS stocks for sale.

    The Pool/Snooker table, the darts and the shove-ha'penny boards are just there wanting to be used. A game of cards is always threatening to occur. The possibility of competitions with other sheds has been raised ....  Talk to Dennis O'Loughlin

    At the recent Executive Committee we talked about our need to improve discussion between shed members of problems they may have. Hopefully solutions and suggestions from shed members may help.

    We thought moving the check-in chat to later in the day may help draw in more people , so we are combining this with Morning Tea - get chatting!

    At present this is a foundering endeavour started by Steve Pearce and Steve Chakalakis who were cataloguing the Shed collection of books, magazine, CDs and DVDs in preparation for providing a library service. They have found some minor gems. 

    Please let us (Iain Salkield, the two Steves) know if you have a hankering to continue the work. It does not have to be on a Wednesday  - this was just when the Steves did their cataloguing.

    We can look at our new website on the BIG TVs, using a Raspberry Pi perched on the back. Have a look if you are interested. Don't poke too much, it depends on a micro-SD card and if you knock it out it will be difficult to find.

    Please let me know what you would like to do.

    Times are flexible - let me know if you want to do something at another time - 10 to 11 is not easy with the ukuleles and i enjoy having a play!

    What I would like to do is get some members happy to  work on the Shed web-site. 

    Have a look at the SBMS web site on the BIG TV in the Big Shed.

    Check with Eric before you come about whether this is occurring - sometimes postponed until after 12 PM talks, sometimes Eric is away and addicts will have to Karaoke (as a verb!) for themselves

    Open to anyone with a voice (and if I try it, ear plugs)

    The Woodwork shed is used for leather work on Wednesdays. As the number of people in the shed is restricted to 5 under COVID-19 requirements and there are 5 leather-workers  woodworking would only be possible if one or more of the leather-workers is absent.
