Reduce, re-use, re-cycle. How about Repair? This is a skill-sharing event and we will be sending our pro-mechanic to share his skills and teach other people to fettle their bikes. This is a community event to draw on skills in the community to mend stuff and get stuff mended. My grandad used to mend his family’s shoes and clocks. My aunt made clothes for four children. Fixing broken things is very satisfying. The idea is to value some of those skills again.
It’s being held at the Walworth Living Room (see pic above) but probably indoors rather than out. This is a new community space in Walworth, for eating, learning, playing, working, sharing a cup of tea and getting to know your neighbours. The heart of the building is the community kitchen, with shared activity, meeting and office spaces.
We are just working on the bike-fixing bits but anyone with a broken thing or skills in mending other (not too enormous) things should phone 020 7703 3803 to contact the organisers or just come along.
