Richmond Repair Corner
It’s Free and Local!
Who we are: a group of local enthusiastic volunteers who care about the environment and want to share our skills with the community.
- Minimize waste to landfill by extending the life of belongings
- Strengthen local communities through face-to-face sharing of knowledge and skills about mending and repairing, often across age and demographics.
What we do: repair household goods, mend clothes, fix broken furniture, make new things from used materials, minimise waste, share skills and have a few cuppas together!
- A number of volunteers help fix your broken items depending on their skill
- We announce in advance which fixers are going to be on hand and what is their specialty. Check our Facebook Page and register to the upcoming repair event to get all the updates!
Bring Us: Your broken goods, and we shall try to fix them!
Some examples of the sorts of items that might be suitable for repair at our sessions include:
- Clothing and textiles (holes/rips)
- Small electrical appliances (kettle, toaster, turntable, lamps, amps, sewing machines, vacuums)
- Bags/Luggage (zips/straps)
Join Us: You can help by joining the fixing team or in providing general support during repair session and/or assisting with promotion. We’re also looking for people who know how to make simple shopping bags from used fabric and can teach others to make them as well.
