Fiddle & Fix

Bring along something which is broken such as an electrical device, a chair or a toy – and ReMode's expert facilitator will help you find out if it can be mended and will show you how!

Fiddle & Fix

About Fiddle & Fix

Asses, repair, revive! Our homes are often filled with broken stuff – irons, phones, chairs, toys, tools, gadgets. The kind of stuff you can’t bring yourself to throw out because it you feel kind of guilty about contributing to the 50 million tonnes of redundant items which are thrown into UK landfill sites every year. This workshop will be your dream come true!

Bring along something which is broken and our experienced facilitators will work through the process of assessment, repairing, replacing, reviving... or scrapping! Obviously not everything will go home working again, but in the meantime you will have learned some basic mend techniques and had a whole lot of fixing fun!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Fiddle & Fix are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
