Repair/Fix It Cafe – Devonport
May 20, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 2:30 pm
Need those trousers hemmed? Holes in your wool jumper? CENTs brings you a community gathering of fixers. In our throw away world and repairing skills quickly diminishing we need to retain the ability to repair and/or fix our items rather than throw them away and buy a new one. As the earths resources are under pressure we ask the big question of how can we contribute to walking lightly on the earth. Manufacturers are increasingly designing products to be thrown away and unable to be repaired.
This event is about learning new skills and knowledge sharing in an attempt to repair your own items with the help of a volunteer mentor. Repairs will be carried out by you. Perhaps your item can’t be fixed but advice is available and if should you need a replacement you can list that as a WANT on CENTs.
Please bring a plate of finger food to share. No dishes/pots please as a designated eating space will not be available on the day.
