Partisan Repair Cafe #1 (hosted by Partisan Collective)

For those not familiar with the term, a Repair Café is a free meeting place where people get together to repair things. The first Repair Café was held in Amsterdam in 2009, and since then, have grown into a global network of menders. 🌎🌍🌏

This is the first repair cafe at Partisan, and we will be starting out repairing clothes and textiles 🥼👕🧦👗🧤👖👚. Our drop in community event will be run by volunteers with skills to share and is and open to all. We will have fabric patches, haberdashery, buttons, and sewing machines on hand to help you to fix your broken clothes, cushion covers, pencil cases etc. There’s no need to book – just turn up on the day with your broken item.💫💫💫

We cannot guarantee to fix your items, or to make them look as they were exactly beforehand, but this is about learning something new and getting some more life out of your beloved posessions. 💃💃💃

If you have any skills please feel free to get in contact, or just come along and say hi on the day.💁‍♀️💁‍♀️💁‍♀️

We will be serving tea and coffee on a donation basis, please bring a mug if you have one ☕☕☕

A suggested donation of £3 is applied to this event. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

We had to open before this in order to fundraise to generate the funds for a ramp and lift, and are currently awaiting planning permission to make these changes.
