Yesterday we held a Repair Café at Brighton University as part of #greenweek2013. We set up at the back of the canteen at the Grand Parade campus and were joined for a chat by students and staff.
Jewellery tools, darning and stitching were used to repair clothing and accessories and an accidental colour theme emerged!
The Swiss darning taught by Tom of Holland in the previous repair cafe progressed and a map of Great Britain now seems to be taking shape on the elbow of my favourite cardigan!
By request we will hold a weekly repair cafe in the same place on Thursday afternoons from 2-4pm during term time. This is open to all staff and students at Brighton University. Participation is free or by donation towards materials and tools. Spread the word!
