Honolulu Kūpuna Shed Grows in Kaka‘ako

Founded in 2016, Honolulu Kupuna Shed was originally named the “Honolulu Men’s Shed,” based on an Australian model that promotes fellowship and well-being among senior men. For the past 8 years, “The Shed” focused on traditional woodworking, bike repair and canoe building. In 2022, The Shed renamed itself the “Honolulu Kupuna Shed” to encourage more women to join. From its new home in Kaka‘ako, the Honolulu Kupuna Shed has expanding its repertoire of activities to include handcrafting and jewelry making. The new, two-story facility also houses areas for laser engraving, CNC carving (a woodworking technique that uses computer-controlled machines) and lathe turning.

Additionally, the Shed will offer short classes in a number of wood and craft disciplines.

The Shed welcomes kūpuna interested in making items from wood (and other materials), collaborating in projects that benefit the community and connecting with like-minded individuals.
