Behind the shed - Issue #1
By Andrew Wilcox • Issue #1 • View online
Welcome to the first and hopefully not the last email that celebrates all things shed - today will post some of my current favourite entries to #shedoftheyear also a few links to interesting shed stuff.
As you have signed up (or been previously interested in #shedoftheyear), you will get the chance to win a book from this library at the end of Feb (so stay connected) and I will pick someone.
Anyway enjoy and excuse the spelling/grammar.

Firstly...
 We look back at last year’s winner to inspire your friends & family to enter their shed.
Bedouin Tree Shed
A peaceful sanctuary to escape our urban surroundings. Ideal for occasional tree hugging and entertaining.

We have not had many follies added to #shedoftheyear this year yet- I love them as it shows a passion for a build that may have gone a little out of control (ahem some may say a shed like #granddesigns)

Some previous follies here >

Here’s something I’ve been working on for the last few weeks. I’ve built a “studio” in my garden shed. https://t.co/cVmW3HSm6J
I see sheds everywhere
Horniman Museum and Gardens
This type of norimono or palanquin is called 'ajiro-kago' or a 'palanquin of bamboo and lacquer.' They were usually used by men, not women, in particular the shogun when they were visiting their temples.

Your Builds
If you are starting a shed build in your garden, could be storage, office, pub, workshop & definitely if it’s a folly, then let me know as I would like to follow the progress and pass it onto the sheddies who are maybe looking to do the same.
Spread the #shedlove #shedoftheyear
The first one is a great Maker Shed that’s also being used for education during lockdown.
And finally...
