Mend It, Fix it @ Fed Square - Get your broken things fixed for Free!
Mend It, Fix it @ Fed Square
The Atrium, Fed Square - 10 and 2 - Saturday 25 February 2023.
As part of the Sustainable Living Festival 2023 in February 2023 we will be holding a Mendit, Fixit session where you can bring along items that are in need of repair.
Following the great success of our event as part of the Zero Waste Festival held in September 2022, we are again having a Mending Circle showing how mending items is a great activity to undertake. The theme will be ’Stitch It, Don’t Ditch It’ following the success of events around the globe.
We will have menders repairing their own items who are also happy to discuss mending with attendees and, if you bring items, to help show how to mend them. We aim to show people how easy mending is to do yourself rather than just mending things for you. So come along to our circle and to sit down and join in for either a chat or mend.
We will also have a Repair Cafe on hand to fix your broken items so bring your things in need of repair – for FREE. Yes, that’s right the Brunswick Tool Library and St Kilda Repair Cafe repair stuff for free! They do this to stop things going to landfill and to educate the public about how to avoid waste from unnecessary purchasing of new products.
Bring along anything you can carry that needs repair and their experienced volunteers will do their best to keep it alive. Items such as: electronics, electrical, wood, metal, sewing, jewellery, bikes, toys, in fact just about anything you can think of.
So come along to join in the fun – Saturday 25 February – The Atrium, Fed Square.
If you would like to volunteer as a mender please get in touch. The more the merrier – firstname.lastname@example.org
