Mending is better than ending.
Come to Hanwell Community centre for the first Hanwell Repair party on Sunday 15 October, Booking essential. Thanks to Ealing council who has brought West London Central Fixers and Ealing Clothes Repair cafe together to help repair your loved electrical items and clothes. Hanwell Community centre is Westcott Crescent, Hanwell W7 1PD.
Electronic waste is a huge issue in the UK. A new study has revealed the countries that produce the most e-waste, with the UK ranking second to Norway. The more we can repair the less we need to buy. The same is to be said about fashion and clothes. The fashion industry is responsible for 8-10% of global emissions which contributes to climate change and UK shoppers buy more clothes than any other country in Europe. The making of a cotton t-shirt uses 2,700 litres of water. So the more clothes we repair and use for longer the less we need to buy.
Ealing Repair cafe will teach you how to fix your clothes either by hand or sewing machine from 1-3 pm. Sewing machines will be available for 30 minute sessions. No booking necessary as a drop in session.
Booking required to bring your slow or broken electronic devices to West London Central Fixers. We will fix them FREE. Book or or call 07773 898806 quick to guarantee place. Also there will be an opportunity for learning about fixing items, so book here or call the number above.
West Central London Fixers bring together volunteer repairers and the community to fix their electronics for free. Their aim is to nurture repair culture in the community, rather than throwing away electronics. This event is also open to volunteer learner repairers so are educational as well. More details and book here.
Ealing Repair café encourages the mending of clothes and textiles. We want to get more people valuing and wearing their clothes for longer and to move away from fast disposable fashion. We run friendly monthly gatherings around Ealing, giving suggestions and show examples of repairs done by our community.
A free event sponsored by Ealing Council.
