The Musty Shed is a wood and metal workshop in Glasgow. We engage in research in low-tech, autonomous and sustainable methods and cultures of building.

Event 1: Tyre Foundation Workshop - ***POSTPONED***

Let’s build!

We will hold a practical workshop focusing on sustainable, affordable and accessible building methods. Together we’ll build tyre foundations for an outdoor projector screen. We will discuss low-tech methods of foundations, the use of recycled materials, and a future of foundations without concrete.

All tools and materials will be provided, along with snacks and refreshments. We will be working outside so please wear comfortable clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. No practical experience is required. All welcome

*** this event is postponed to late June/early July, if you are interested in participating please email for more information ***

Event 2: Short Film Screening - Tuesday 6th June 19:00-21:00 @ Board Room Committee Room

We will screen short films on building and demolition, autonomous building and self-building and ruptures within the built environment. The films show ways of having influence within the built environment, and acting on space in the city.

The screening will include a combination of documentary and more abstract films intrinsically linked with the built environment and urban space. The approaches demonstrated in the films go against the grain of mainstream construction processes, and focus on lesser known histories within the fabric of cities.

The films explore topics such as the repurposing of demolition waste, and insights into an all black self-build in Lewisham. The films will be screened on a projector screen built from demolition waste.
