Inspired by the “repair cafe” movement in Amsterdam, Community Glue Workshop’s goals are to divert repairable items from the waste stream (or repurpose them if need be), encourage critical thinking, debunk the relentless myth that newer is better, and foster community. We’ve had an incredible group of volunteers helping us do just that since we started Chicago’s first repair clinics in July 2012.
We host our free, monthly repair clinics at Edgewater Workbench, a local maker space, and local, mechanically-inclined volunteers will work on just about any busted, torn, or short-circuited item you can fit through the front door. All are welcome, and donations are accepted but not required.
