English term or phrase: men's shed
Dalle foto che mi propone google sembrerebbe un'istituzione come un circolo per anziani o un dopolavoro o un club riservato comunque ai soli uomini... Un aiuto a trovare una definizione in italiano?
Grazie

Explanation:
E' lungo, ma dire in modo breve non rende molto e si fraintende, credo. :)

ritrovo per uomini anziani e non


Explanation:
Da quello che so non è un'associazione o circolo formale ma un ritrovo che inizia spontaneamente e poi diventa permanente in cui uomini (solitamente anziani) si ritrovano per fare piccoli lavori (ad. es. aggiustare una bici, fare un lavoro di falegnameria ecc.) e in cui uomini giovani assistono per imparare o soltanto per fare nuove amicizie.

Reference information:
Non capisco perché si debba riferire ad uomini "anziani". Ecco un riferimento: "The Men's Shed is a place where skilled and unskilled men ***of all ages*** can share time with each other, swapping yarns and working together on personal or community based projects."
