On October 19, Halifax Makerspace was invited to participate in Clean Foundation‘s Fix It Fair at the Central Library. The goal of the event was to divert items from landfills by reusing or fixing them.
A variety of artists, fixers, and makers fixed, or advised people how to fix, a variety of items: clothing, sewing machines, lamps, coffee makers, vacuums, tools. We also got to talk shop with our colleagues at the Halifax Tool Library, and had a great time. We hope this will be a recurring event, and look forward to lending a hand again in the future.
