OPEN HOOSE – Repair Shop

September 14 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

Makers, menders, tinkers, tailors, we need you! 


Repair Shop is a fun and interactive event for learners and hobbyists to swap skills, try out new techniques and get making. So if you think yourself a mender or can’t tell the difference between a spanner and a corkscrew, it’s open to all. 

We’re all about connecting with people who want to be part of growing a new group dedicated to repairing, mending, fixing and building. From tech to textiles, it’s open to all, so if you’re a fixer-upper, DIY hero or just looking to learn, get involved!

So, if you’re into the ethos of Repairing, want to meet new, like minded, folk over a bite to eat, join us!

How do we collectively build a repair shop for Dumfries?

Ideas from the first Repair Shop Social in September 2022 were used to develop instructions to how to tackle this question. Download these instructions here.
