Future Shed Fridays

Future Shed

Future Shed Fridays offer a welcoming, weekly space to help bring green and healthy initiatives to fruition in Frome and the surrounding area.

Ideas and connections

Cook up ideas, plans and projects to make real change around climate and wellbeing. Future Shed is a space to meet up, connect and build relationships to effect change. It doesn’t matter what stage of a project you’re at – whether you’re already in the thick of it, just toying with an idea or simply passionate about making a difference but not sure how. Everyone’s welcome.


Use Edventure’s professional co-working space and workshop/makerspace and meeting room – for free: fast WiFi, fabulous ethical teas and coffee, desks with beautiful plants.

Future Shed timings

9.30 – 1.30 : open for co-working

10 -11: informal chat around the table to discuss the ideas and connections in the room and any support that can be offered from the Future Shed team. (You don’t have to join for this – continue co-working if you like).

12 – 12.30: break, lunch, hang out

(If a 10am meet up doesn’t work for you to connect, get in touch to work out a time to suit).

The First Fridays of the month are focused on Food & Growing, and the Third Fridays on Textiles & Clothing. But come along on any Friday, regardless of your interest – always happy to introduce you to Future Shed.

Further support from Future Shed on offer:

  • free 121 coaching from a qualified social enterprise coach with a wealth of experience of starting social enterprises and community projects in Frome and beyond.
  • free 121 support to access funding from a Frome-based professional fundraiser with 25 years experience of working on both sides of the fundraising fence.
  • making connections with others across Frome who are focusing on wellbeing and climate action, who could help you open new doors, learn new skills and move your idea on a step.

Why ‘Future Shed’?

The ‘shed movement’ is about people meeting up in a space to share skills, helping each other to fix, repair and create. Future Shed is about ideas, energy, creativity and connection. It’s about meeting up to build relationships, start ups and growing initiatives . It can also be used as a space for practical making. It is a space where people come together to share ideas and bring green and healthy initiatives to fruition.

Future Shed is a project by Edventure: Frome as part of the Green & Healthy Future for Frome project in partnership with Frome Medical Practice and Frome Town Council. It is funded by The National Lottery Community Fun, part of the Climate Action Fund.

Future Shed Friday sessions are hosted by Sue Palmer (Future Shed Lead) and on occasion, other members of the Edventure team.
