It’s all about repairing things (together).
Bring your item to mend/repair and sit down with a volunteer fixer.
You’ll find volunteers with repair skills in a variety of areas to assist with clothing, furniture, appliances, toys, wood, metal, textiles and electronics.
It provides an opportunity for valuable knowledge to be passed on, connections to be made and
of course reduce our ever-increasing landfill.
Work carried out is free of charge, a voluntary donation is always appreciated to assist with running costs. Note: new materials/parts must be provided or paid for separately.
Our next session will be
Saturday December 14, 1 pm – 4 pm
WHERE: Milpara Community House,
21 Shellcot Road Korumburra
COST: Free, Donations welcome
(Note: New materials/parts must be provided or paid for separately)
Are you a fixer?
When I was young, I remember watching my grandfather’s tinker in theirs sheds; things went in not working or broken, after some maintenance or repairs they often would come out ready to go again. Both of my Nan’s had sewing boxes with buttons, zips, and cottons ready for darning, a quick mend or alteration. Not much was discarded before someone had at least tried to give it a second chance. We don’t want to loose these skills! We want our community members to share and help others learn to repair independently into the future.
As you can see in the photos below, taken at other similar events, fixers can be all ages, male or female and repair or mend a variety of items. If you have skills to share and would be interested in volunteering please contact Belinda at Milpara on 56552524 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
