Why a Repair Café?So we can reduce this!
We throw away vast amounts of stuff. Even things with almost nothing wrong, and which could get a new lease on life after a simple repair.
The trouble is, lots of people have forgotten that they can repair things themselves or they no longer know how. Knowing how to make repairs is a skill quickly lost. Society doesn’t always show much appreciation for the people who still have this practical knowledge so come along learn, have fun. Fix, repair, reuse don't throw away.
Our Wivenhoe Repair Café is attempting to change all that!
Repair Café teaches people to see their possessions in a new light. And, once again, to appreciate their value. Repair Café helps change people’s mindset. This is essential to kindle people’s enthusiasm for a sustainable society.
But most of all, Repair Café just wants to show how much fun repairing things can be, and how easy it often is. Why don’t you give it a go?
