We’re really excited to be running Hillsborough Park’s first Share and Repair – a community repair shop and skillshare – on Saturday 30th July! The event is free and drop-in, come along any time. Book here: https://gatheringground.uk/events/39/67
Share and Repair events will see local volunteers, craftspeople and businesses offering their help to repair items that have seen better days, and sharing these skills with people from the Hillsborough community.
So far the first event will feature:
Guitar Repair and Skillshare: Bring your guitar along for a check-up or to learn how to make simple adjustments – for free thanks to Gatling Guitars!
Sewing Repairs and Skillshare: local volunteer Kath will be volunteering her time to help with clothing and fabric fixes
It’s not too late to volunteer your skills either – if you’re a Sheffield maker or business who has expertise around musical instruments, bikes, sewing, woodwork, or anything else – we would love to hear from you! Anybody can get involved – whether your skill is a hobby or a job – you’ll be very welcome, and in return we are happy to profile your business or workshop at our event and on social media. More info about how to get involved: https://rivelinco.org/we-need-you-share-and-repair/
Share and Repair will take place at the Bradbury Maker’s Shed in lovely Hillsborough Park, and there is also the possibility of using some outdoor space (Yorkshire weather depending!)
