What do you do with a chair when the leg has come loose? A lamp that no longer works? A toaster that doesn't toast? A holey jumper? Throw it away? No way! We are hosting afternoons of fixing and skill-sharing.
Please book here: https://bit.ly/haringeyfixers
Repair Cafés are community events where local people get together to fix broken things and learn new skills. Repair Cafés aim to help people learn to fix things, to bring about a shift in consumerism and to throw less away. We skill-share and build community. Bring something that needs fixing and let's fix it - we have experienced fixers who can help. Don't leave it in a cupboard or throw it away - fix it.
Let us know on the order form what time suits you and what you are bringing.
If you have skills you can share, please come along and help us help others - just book the first session and let us know on the order form you can help. You can swap skills too if you have broken stuff.
