On Thursday through Saturday afternoons we will repair. It will be a combination of demonstration, discussion and doing. I will demonstrate a particular skill or technique. You will bring a relevant object that is in need of attention. We will discuss what can be done. And somehow we will make it right.
On Mondays we will reduce and regenerate.
On Sundays we will work on waste reduction, plastics in particular.
