The Latrobe Valley Repair Café is an initiative of Morwell Neighbourhood House to identify locals with a passion to share their skills with others to repair items and teach them how to do it for themselves. We are focused on sustainability, skill sharing & building connections.
We are hoping to tap into the incredible wealth of skills & knowledge in our community to help build capacity, support connections, reduce landfill & household spending. Most of all we want to provide a space to celebrate our community strengths, a space owned and operated by our community.
We are hoping to hear from volunteer repairers who have the skills to repair furniture, bicycles, clothing, textiles, books battery-operated appliances.
This will be a share and learn space, you might be able to play an instrument or be a history buff with stories from yesterday year to share with someone who is keen to listen. Maybe you have skills in sharpening tools.
Get in touch with us by calling 51345488. Once we have identified a couple of passionate & eager repairers we will set a date for our first café. facebook page.
The Repair Café Foundation has the following goals:
a) to bring back repairing into local society in a modern way;
b) to maintain repair expertise and to spread this knowledge;
c) to promote social cohesion in the local community by connecting neighbours from very different backgrounds
and with different motives with each other through an inspiring and low-key event.
