In this throwaway society small household electricals and domestic appliances, tools and toys to name a few, have become items that are expected to last for a year or two at best before heading straight to landfill.

Proper Job are collaborating with Merlin Howes from Moreton Creative to host an Electrical Repair Workshops. Come along and learn some hands on skills such as repair, mechanics and electronics and hopefully gain a repaired item!

Participants can bring along 1-2 electrical items such as tools, toys and domestic appliances, and together with skilled staff and volunteers attempt to repair the item, using reclaimed parts wherever possible.

We will be scheduling a follow up workshop in the New Year and hope to run this as a regular recurring session.
