Do you have a toaster that no longer pops up, or a hem that’s too long, a bicycle chain that needs work, or a knife or tool that needs sharpening? Then, bring them along to the wonderful Repair Cafe, and one of our skilled fixers will repair it for you, for a small donation!
When and Where: Sunday February 19th, 1-4pm, Creswick Neighbourhood Centre, 21/19 Victoria St, Creswick
What’s a Repair Café? Repair Cafes are an incredible community resource with strong environmental credentials. Every item for repair is weighed as you come in so we can record how much is being saved from land-fill. Our repairers give loved and useful items a new lease of life! We also have a ‘mending broken hearts’ table.
Café and Workshops: There’s a café where you can enjoy a cuppa, cake and/or soup, as well as a chat with others, while you’re item is being repaired. We run How-to Workshops on a regular basis so you can learn how to fix and maintain in good working order your household and garden items, clothing, bikes and much more.
Looking for more fixers: All our fixers are volunteers with a range of skills required to repair mechanical, electrical and digital items, as well as clothing, furniture, and household and gardening equipment. Knives and tools can be sharpened as well as bicycles repaired. We’re always looking for more locals with skills in sewing, jewellery, musical instruments, shoes, digital equipment and more.
If you are interested, and would enjoy being part of a dedicated and creative group, contact Veronica on 0428 180 200 or Danny on 0488 604 231, or pop in to the Creswick Neighbourhood Centre on Sunday 19th and check it out.
Note: We’ll be back at Victoria Park Pavillion, Ballan Road, Daylesford, on Sunday March 19th.Repair Cafe Creswick
