Following a successful partnership with the Men’s Sheds Association, Ronseal was invited to exhibit at their 2019 Shedfest event to speak to members of the Association about future ways of working.

Shedfest 2019, which took place at the University of Worcester in September, was held with the intent of bringing the members of the Association, or ‘Shedders’ as they are known, together to hear from exhibitors and fellow members about innovative ways to run their Sheds effectively.

The partnership with Ronseal and the Men’s Shed Association was borne earlier this year from Ronseal’s desire to educate millennials and younger generations on the benefits of being DIY savvy.

Ronseal exhibited at Shed Fest, an event which has been running for several years now and attracts hundreds of shedders from across the country. With their own branded stand, Ronseal invited shedders to learn all about their products and what works best for specific DIY tasks.

Attendees were also challenged to see how long they could hold a 2.5 litre tub of 10 Year Woodstain without dropping it, with the person holding the record for the longest time walking away with a hamper full of Ronseal woodcare products.

Ronseal held their own Workshop during Shedfest too, speaking to Shedders and Leaders about the successes of the partnership, including sharing information on how the Manchester Ronseal DIY Workshop was planned and executed.

Following this, Shedders were invited to express their interest in taking the Ronseal DIY Workshop model and rolling it out in their own areas, and to discuss how they could benefit from working with Ronseal through 2020.
