Event description

Description

***Cancelled due to the cook being unwell and some volunteers on holiday.***

Come along and bring something to fix, or just have a pleasant chat about repair, reducing waste and building a resilient local economy over lunchtime.

Part of the monthly Cafe Collective get-together at Transition Town Forres:

Free entry, with a lunch menu on offer from the wonderful cooking team at TTF.

Examples of skills covered:

  • Bike repair
  • Clothing repair
  • Electronics
  • IT troubleshooting
  • Mending toys & furniture

Make sure that you bring any necessary connectors, accessories or spare parts with you. For example, if you want to repair a cracked screen then you will need to get a spare part to fit that model. For many common replacement parts iFixit are recommended for quality. If you can't find it yourself then we can show you how to find one for next time. We may have some basic spare parts like fuses but are unlikely to have anything device-specific.


To find us by road, take the A96 Forres bypass (from the direction of Elgin) and turn off to your left about 0.3 miles after exiting the roundabout. On foot, look for a wood-faced building to the right of that green patch on the google map below.

Registration in advance is not necessary, but helps us to prepare for the day.

Find out more about TTF here. This event has been based on the Restart Party formula.



Disclaimer:

We are happy to help you learn how to repair. Our skilled volunteers are here to teach, not to perform professional repair work, and Restart Parties are a community self-repair space. As such, you must take responsibility for your own gadgets.

We aim to repair already-broken items and prevent them from going to waste, and if something needs to be dismantled, further damage can be done to fragile parts in that process, so do not bring items that are under warranty, as doing so is likely to void it. Also be aware that the use of hand tools carries with it a risk of injury. If bringing a computing device, make sure to back up your data.

By attending, you agree not to hold the volunteers or organisers liable for any loss or damages incurred as part of the event.
