We’re excited to announce that our friends at Makerspace Adelaide have taken over the delivery of Adelaide Repair Cafe sessions (previously run by the Adelaide Sustainability Centre).
Makerspace Adelaide (at 110 Franklin St, opposite the Joinery) is a community fabrication workshop providing affordable access to tools and equipment, and a like-minded community of makers.
Their repair cafes sessions, held from 12-3pm the last Sunday of each month, provide a welcoming space for community to learn skills to repair broken or damaged items.
The Adelaide Repair Cafe and Unley Repair Cafe began with Fund My Neighbourhood grants in 2017. Since then the movement has taken off in Adelaide, and there are now eight(!) regular sessions in South Australia, and over 1,400 globally.
While each repair cafe operates differently, each play an important role supporting the community to divert items from landfill, share practical repair knowledge, and reduce our collective impact on the environment.
