Our team of volunteers share their skills mending items including electronics, textiles & clothing, bikes, small furniture, crockery & toys. We also offer different upcycling activities and demos at each event.
How it works – collect up one or two items that need mending:
Electrical repairs – please bring 1 portable item only as we have limited time for these.
Clothes and textiles – We’ll have sewing machines ready and people to help you learn how to darn a jumper, hem a skirt or fix a patch on your jeans!
Also – bikes, toys, small furniture
Please note – The Welsh Mill Hub venue is upstairs
Just turn up with your item! or email in advance if you have a specific query, as we cannot guarantee every item can be fixed
