Faire: Maker / Repair


Make mend and do. Are you part of the Maker Movement? or part of the Repair Movement? To us they are two sides of the same ribbon. Makers make the most amazing things, repairers repair stuff that most people would think couldn't be fixed. Both have skills that are essential to the don't throw away culture of today. Both are doing amazing things that you need to know about!
