About the Event
Launch event on 6th June took place in the week that the New Scientist editorial tackled 'Fast Fashion'. Shaftesbury's repair cafe supports a revolution in our use of 'stuff'. It currently highlights ways of prolonging the life of clothing, mending, upcycling and remodelling clothes and more. Other 'fixers' - for example an upholsterer - can be contacted by arrangement. The intention is to grow the network of fixers able to advise on and assist with a wide range of items - clocks, ceramics, electrical items etc. If you're good at fixing things and want to get involved call in to suss it out. If you have something that's faulty or broken and you want to conserve it pop in and ask if there's a local person who might help.
