TimeBank Hurunui invites your involvement in our exciting new spring 2020 event.

REPURPOSE & REPAIR EXPO, Amberley Pavilion, 26 September

Showcasing ingenious ways, old and new, to give fresh life to objects and materials that would otherwise be discarded.

There will be displays and demonstrations, mini workshops, and plenty of opportunity to share ideas and skills. 

Display categories will include:

  • textiles/clothing,
  • tools and machinery,
  • furniture, appliances,
  • garden, farm or general outdoor items,
  • plastics, artwork,
  • miscellaneous items.
  • There'll be a Repair Hub, for people to bring items to be fixed or mended
  • The Schools' Station will be where students get to share what they've made and learned
  • And of course we'll set up a Cafe Corner for people to sit and socialise over a cuppa

Our first Repurpose & Repair Expo will be a free or low-entry-cost event, by the community, for the community. The long-term vision behind this project is to establish a Repurposing/Upcycling workshop in Amberley, alongside a Recycle Shop. If you are inspired to participate or help in any way,  contact 03 314 3406 or 

We would love to hear from you about suggestions or skills you'd like to offer, or contacts with 'repurpose' champions you know whom we could approach.  To fill out the Registration of Interest Form, click on this link
