The Banga Community Shed is a place where people come together to learn and share skills around electronics and repairs. Volunteers and members of the community are always welcome. Whatever your level of knowledge is, we’d love to have you.

Banga Community Shed is home to our electronic Repair Café, which takes place every Wednesday 1pm – 4pm, and the 1st Saturday of every month from 10am – 12pm. The Banga Community shed also hosts clothing, bike and mobile phone repair cafes on 2nd, 3rd and 4th Saturdays.

Parramatta Women’s Shed

Thanks to the support of City of Parramatta Council, Parramatta Women’s Shed is now helping the women of Western Sydney gain the confidence to pick up tools. After an exciting launch, when forty women visited the Bower Reuse & Repair Centre to discuss their interests and hopes for what the Women’s Shed would offer, a program of hands-on workshops taught by female instructors has been developed. Join the mailing list here and stay up to date with all the latest about the Women’s Shed.
