Boomer Shed members create unique trophies for Wearable Arts

Updated: Jun 20, 2022

This week is National Volunteer Week, which honours the collective energies and mana of volunteers in Aotearoa. This year’s theme is ‘Time to Shine / He wā pīataata.’ We’d like to take this opportunity to recognise and celebrate our Boomer Shed Members!


A wonderful example of their mahi is Paul Meyers’ and Colin White’s work on creating these amazing trophies for the winners of Eye on Nature Wearable Arts 2022. Aren’t they magnificent?



Paul and Colin rose to the challenge to design and create these trophies by repurposing timber offcuts. The workmanship and level of detail in these trophies, made from materials that otherwise would have gone to landfill, is just outstanding and we are truly grateful for their ingenuity.


Paul and Colin put many volunteer hours into carving these beautiful, bespoke trophies to ensure the winning students will receive unique awards to reflect their diligence and achievement. We hope the receiving schools cherish these trophies as much as we do!





The Boomer Shed is our community shed for men and women over 50 who are keen to volunteer on community projects, learn new skills and make new friends. All backgrounds, skills and experience are valued and welcome.


Keen to find out more? We are thrilled to be hosting a special open day for our Boomer Shed! We welcome everyone in the community to come and see what the Boomer Shed is all about, and maybe even sign up as a member yourself.
