We all feel happier and healthier when we have goals to work towards and this doesn’t change with age. Woodworking is one great recreational activity that people with age related limitations can take up easily, is rewarding, and also counts as exercise! Project My Active Life inspired by TADSA commenced a woodworking program that continued across 3 weeks in partnership with the Men’s Shed in Strathalbyn. The program was targeted at providing opportunity for the aged and for those with physical limitations to engage with like-minded people, learn a new skill, enhance their creativity, have some fun while making things they love. The group had a memorable time learning the functions of machinery and material, machine safety, activities around using different tools such as routers, jig saw, nailing and de-nailing, cutting, clamping, polishing and a lot more which kept their hands and minds very busy. The program also helped them build a sustainable partnership with the Men’s Shed through which they can engage in their hobbies as and when they want to during the months to come. We sincerely thank the ‘Shed’ and all the volunteers for all the guidance and coordination given to make these woodworks sessions a great success!
