Local artist having a whale of a time!

Whale taking shape under the skilful hands of master carver Keith Gall

Experienced and talented local artist, Keith Gall, has been having a whale of a time carving out his unique pieces from locally sourced timber.

Keith, an Australian chainsaw champion, has been busy at the Tin Can Bay Community and Men’s Shed, bringing his sculptures to life and sharing his knowledge and expertise with shed members.

Cute mushrooms, dolphins, whales, horses and other pieces are then offered for sale at the local market, whilst others find their way to boutique shops on the Sunshine Coast.

Keith now calls ‘The Shed’ his home and envisages teaching his craft in the near future. A very talented man producing quality pieces that will be the talking point in any home!

The Shed has been quite busy this month hosting the local beer brewing meeting and holding IT/Computer/Phone and macramé classes. Our Phoenix Program (Health and WellBeing) was well attended in August.

September’s guest speaker on Monday 21 will provide insight and information relating to Aged Care Assessments, which is a topic of high importance to the local community. Places are limited and bookings are now open. Please call Joy on 0455 629 232 to reserve your place.

And, if you’re interested in learning the basic moves of chess, why not come along on a Friday morning between 10-12 noon. Learn from scratch or build on existing knowledge.  Bookings required – call Carole on 0437 880 438.

Don’t forget, we are a collection point for recycling bottles and cans and we’re open every weekday between 9am – 12 noon.

We are a community shed – welcoming new members and offering great facilities. We are located behind Cityfarm at the Cooloola Complex. For further information, please contact Bryan Phillips (Shed Manager) on 0420 299 651.
