Each month we organise and promote a Trashlab Repair Cafe event at a different location. In April, Kulmahuone (Siltasaarenkatu 15) hosts the repair cafe event on Saturday 20.4. from 14-17.
Kulmahuone is an inspiring studio and workspace of freelancers, makers and other creatives in Kallio on Siltasaarenkatu. Teacher and sewing-enthusiast Lotta Remming will host the event, which focuses on repairing and modifying broken or unfitting clothes. We´ll have atleast few sewing machines, threads and needles and other equipment at hand. You can also bring your own tools.
Trashlab repair cafe events are social occasions to gather and try to fix the things you have that are broken, and meet others who care about tinkering, fixing, hacking, and the problem of waste and obsolescence in society. Each time we try to identify someone(s) in advance who have some experience/skills, although everyone is encourage to help each other.
