We are a partnership of arts organisations helping to shape a sustainable Scotland. Our mission is to:
• Engage the cultural sector in actively promoting environmental sustainability and addressing climate change
• Help the sector take a lead in shaping an environmentally sustainable Scotland
• Help the sector run itself as environmentally sustainably as possible
The Edinburgh Remakery is a social enterprise, community repair hub and second-hand shop based in the Leith area of Edinburgh. Our vision is to create an alternative to a disposable society by making repair education accessible to all, to build a stronger, waste-free community and support vulnerable people within our city.
We do this by taking in unwanted second-hand goods and refurbishing and repairing them, giving them a new lease of life and selling these on at affordable prices or gifting them to people who need them most. We also run regular workshops in various repair techniques and skills around sewing and textiles, and furniture and woodwork, to empower people and give them the opportunity to learn to mend their own belongings, saving them money, giving them a brand new skillset, and helping the environment.
