Some sewing, glueing, & other fixes..like to learn how to do simple repairs on household items, bike, car etc
Want to learn & share ideas with people motivated to value "old" stuff by repairing & re-using. Abhor the Throwaway culture. Need to tap in to knowledge of war years when there was real austerity & people had to make do & mend. Stunned by the repairs & reuse the Eritrean people of North Africa achieved during the terrible wars there with Ethiopia. Visited in 1994 & saw amazing things.
Passionate about not wasting our earth's valuable resources
Really enjoyed seeing people get help repairing their things so that they can keep using them and not be forced to throw them away.
