Event description

Let's meet again, repair, thinker, fix, break, up-cycle and reuse our broken things! A (semi-) expert team of fixers and avid thinkerers will be at your disposal and ready to help you with your broken stuff, but self-reliancy and experimentation is encouraged!

* In this TrashLab we will be concentrating on our textile waste, in celebration of Fashion Revolution Week, so bring your clothes to mend, reuse or re-cycle! The event is open to everyone, free of charge and you are encouraged to bring your own clothes for repairing, mending or up-cycling. The repairs are made for free and there are also basic sewing lessons offered on-site.

* You can also bring your broken devices, electronics, bikes and other consumer products to repair!



For those who are not familiar with the TrashLab concept: Trashlab explores experimental art-design-technology practices between hacker and maker cultures, in the context of re/up-cycling and the increased availability of new fabrication tools.

Trashlab’s objective is to build up a community of people (artists, designers, hackers, makers, re/up-cyclers, activists) who are concerned with material and electronic waste in contemporary society, and tackle this problem with creative and tangential approaches. We follow the aim to encourage a peer-based learning environment related to hacking electronics, repair practices, appropriate technology for renewable energy production/usage, digital fabrication, reusing and re/up-cycling materials.
