Waste Not... Workshop

Our society is lightyears from the ‘Make do and mend’ generation of the post war. Nowadays we’re encouraged to replace, not mend, but this is not so good for our environment. To coincide with our anti-upgrading exhibition ‘Waste Not…’ we will be holding a drop-in workshop for visitors to learn how to repair their devices rather than upgrading.

We have invited RESTART www.therestartproject.org to come and lead repair workshops on electronic equipment. Bring along whatever you need fixing – your old phone, radio, charger, blender, whatever – and the fixers will fix, while at the same time showing you how to do it.

We’re also asking the creative wizzkids MAKERSPACE  www.southlondonmakerspace.org to come along – they can even use their 3-d printer to make replacement components!

David Reeves will also be joining us from the U3A to give soft furnishings and upholstery repair demonstrations throughout the afternoon.


Saturday 28 March 2015. Drop in anytime from 1.00pm – 4.00pm

Free Entry | Suggested Donation £2

Hi there, sorry to hear you cant make our Waste Not Workshop! It doesnt have to be a very old appliance, just anything that could be repaired rather than replaced - your radio sounds like the perfect candidate! We dont have any more of these planned

Any chance you will be putting on another of these workshops? I cant come on 28th but would love to. Also, does it only deal with older appliances, etc? What about a brand new radio that stopped working a few months after I bought it, 18 months ago
Another Waste Not Workshop, please!
