Fix (Nearly) Anything

Monday, June 19, 2017, 7:00 pm

You (Yes, YOU!) can make or fix nearly anything. Ultimately these abilities result from a superpower that lies within each of us: the ability to self-instruct.   Bring in anything broken during our monthly fix-it sessions at Petworth Library and work with a group to come up with solutions. We will provide assistance, tools and support, but ultimately the aim is for participants to accomplish the make/fix themselves. Together, we can discover new things and teach each other new skills!
