Western society revolves around consumption, and we buy more things and then throw them out when they cease to work. Many things get thrown out that can be easily fixed, but few people have the knowledge or expertise to fix them. There are some of these people left though – people with skills to fix things – and we hope to bring those people out to the wider community to teach us new things – through this Repair Cafe.
Repair Cafe teaches people to see their possessions in a new light, to appreciate them more, and to show people how easy and fun repairing things can be.
Here is local media coverage of KW repaircafe
