When in doubt, don’t throw out! Bring it and repair it.
Saturday 11 August 2018
Repair Lab is a grassroots initiative to encourage and help folks to come up with new and creative ways to salvage perfectly usable things.
Repair Lab gathers volunteers who have the skills to work with you to assess and fix your broken items. Hopefully, through the process, you will gain some insight on how to repair other things around your home. It’s a collaborative and learning experience, a little antidote to our modern day throw-away mentality.
What should I bring?
Anything that can be brought in and carried by one person – from a bicycle to jeans, from a toaster to your woolly hat, from a toy to a piece of furniture. Our volunteers include sewing and darning people for textiles, a jewellery repairer, electrical engineers for electrical items, bicycle repairers for bikes and the likes and general repairers for anything else.
RepairLab is completely volunteer-run; it is a collaborative learning workshop.
The repair experts can help and show you how to fix your items. A gold coin donation would be nice though to help with organising more Repair Labs.
Please read the Repair Lab House Rules.
There’s no need to book, however it’s handy to know how many people to expect!
RepairLab thanks Maker&Smith for hosting at Artsource for the first ‘RepairLab’ in Fremantle.
