Repair Café is for community members to bring their broken/damaged items and work with volunteer repairers and menders to try and fix them.

Have a broken dishwasher bracket? A missing nozzle on your fancy Espresso machine? A broken leg on your office chair?

Bring any household plastic item or toy that needs some TLC and let’s see if they can repair it, thanks to the magic of 3D printing!

Do you have a tear in your winter coat? An article of clothing that needs hemming or mending?

October isn’t the only month dedicated to fright anymore, the past 19+ months have been a tornado of unpredicted scares. I could rattle on (or rant on…) for paragraphs, but we’ve all lived through a different experience. The one thing uniting us in this ever-changing world, is our fatigue. The constant change of rules from a global scale to the rules of entering a grocery store. We’re tired. We’re frightened. We have no idea what the future holds. But we’re together through it all. 

“We have so many apparent differences: a dancer and a writer, a city person and a rural person – yet the mixed media of our presentation derives from the much more powerful, but perhaps less visible, similarities,” Jon Turk wrote to me on first discussing this feature. I was surprised to learn of his newest endeavour – Synchronicity and the Sacred Space.
