Because of the pandemic, there have been no face-to-face Repair Cafes since March.
Circular Cambridge, who co-ordinate our local Repair Cafes, are unfortunately not anticipating face-to-face Cafes returning before 2021. However, possible developments in the meantime include repair tutorials on YouTube, and online public-facing skill-sharing sessions. Excitingly, they are also forging links with the community workshop Makespace, in Mill Lane, Cambridge, which has space and equipment where repairs could potentially be carried out.
For a record of a conversation (3 November) introducing Repair Cafe people to Makespace and a virtual tour of Makespace facilities, click here. For a response from local repairers and a description of the Repair Cafe process from a repairer point of view (10 November), click here.
