CANCELLED**The Repair Cafe

Saturday, September 25, 2021

The Sustainable Black Diamond Advisory Committee is holding a Repair Cafe.

We throw away vast amounts of stuff. Even things with almost nothing wrong, and which will receive a new lease on life after a simple repair. The trouble is many of us have forgotten that we can repair things ourselves. Knowing how to make repairs is a skill, quickly lost, and just as quickly relearned with some guidance and a little time.
Repair Cafés are free drop-in places. In a Repair Café, you will find tools and materials to help make any repairs you need. On clothes, furniture, electrical appliances, bicycles, crockery, appliances, toys, et cetera. You'll also find expert volunteers, with repair skills in all kinds of fields.
Visitors bring broken items to the Repair Café and start making their repairs together with the specialists. It’s an ongoing learning process. If you have nothing to repair, you can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee. You can lend a hand with someone else’s repair job, learn from someone with knowledge about repairs, or make the repair yourself with guidance. You can also get inspired at the reading table – by leafing through books on repairs and DIY.
