Chris Moller came in to Makespace to present a tour of the toolbox that is available to all Repair Cafes to borrow. Unlike what you might imagine from a DIY toolbox, this one contains all sorts of interesting tools and tricks.

Here is the video from the talk that was live-streamed on our new channel:

If you are interested in repairs, consider joining the Repair Club group that will start to become the home for repair related events & chat, and for collaborations across the two organisations.

The trial was really promising, so the goal now is to refine and package it all so it is really quick and easy for any member to setup and use – more details on this soon!

If you are interested to try streaming a talk or event, or videoing a story, training or alike (see our channel for some first examples), email and we’ll help make it happen!
