Coronavirus Update (COVID-19)

As we’re sure you’re all aware, the pandemic virus has been spreading in the UK for the last few weeks, putting specific groups at risk (those over 70 or with pre-existing conditions, and healthcare workers.)

Recorded cases in our region are still low, but we’re expecting that to change over the next days or weeks, so we think now is the time to take action,
so we’ve made the decision to suspend the physical meetup and move online.

What happens at Tech Shed Frome?

Weekly Sessions
We meet every Wednesday from 7-9pm at The Welsh Mill Hub, to socialise, share, learn and create.

Open Days
Open days are for anyone to join. For example we might have a 'Build an air quaility sensor workshop' for anyone in Frome to come and learn how to build their own sensor.

Working on projects
We connect with the town council, businesses, and local people to create interesting and technological solutions that benefit the community.
Can I help out on a project?

Yes! Take a look at who should get involved to see what sort of role you might like to take. To see on-going projects, take a look at our problem board

Can I work on my own thing and just tinker?

Yes! Whatever it is, if it's your own interest, or you want to just play and learn.

Can I chat to someone before I come?

Sure, drop the Tech Shed team a message before and we will do our best to make you feel at home.

Will you fix my laptop or tech kit?

We don’t fix stuff on our own, but if you bring it along you may find another member can help or give you pointers. It can be your next project.

I don’t feel very confident about technology am I welcome?

Yes! Whilst we don’t offer lessons or any courses, if you are willing to try, mess it up and try again, a member will be happy to show you the basics. You might also be interested in coming to a more structured open day.
