What do you do with a chair when the leg has come loose? With a toaster that no longer works? Or with a woolly jumper that’s full of holes?
Toss it? No way! Bring it along to the Repair Café at the Edinburgh Mini Maker Faire.
Brought to you by Glasgow’s MAKLab, designers, crafters and people who make and fix stuff will be ready and waiting to make your object good as new or find it a whole new purpose. They’ll even talk you through how they did it.
Any broken, badly-designed or malfunctioning object is welcome, but how about…
- Electronics and small electrical items – headphones, speakers etc.
- Clothes – knitted, or for darning or patching
- Household items and gadgets
The Café will be open all day. No need to pre-book, just grab a seat and see what MAKLab’s makers can create!
