Repair Cafe ONLINE
Have something that needs repair? Book in to have the great people from St Kilda Repair Cafe to get advice on how to go about repairing your item. We will have Iain, a computer whiz, Gwen, a sewing whiz and John, a general repairs whiz.
The sessions are filling fast so our repair whizzes will be very busy. The session will also be open to anyone interested in learning more about repairs and if time allows our whizzes will answer any questions you have. Just pop them in the chat.
Donations will support Zero Waste Victoria's endeavours to tackle the war on waste, with a focus on education and advocacy campaigns to encourage reusables and a world without waste.
The Zero Waste Festival 2021 is being held in partnership with Stonnington Council and is also supported by the Stonnington Community Grants Program
