Remade in Edinburgh is a social enterprise and charity. Our mission is to create a zero waste society by teaching repair and reuse skills and promoting sustainability, and campaigning for products to be built to last. And we want to do this in a way which is not only informative, but also engaging, creative, and fun.
In May 2016 we opened our very own repair hub, the Edinburgh Remakery, at 127 Leith Walk. Here we sell second-hand refurbished and affordable furniture and IT equipment, host a weekly repair drop-in surgery every Thursday night, and run weekly workshops in textiles and woodwork/furniture repairs and upcycling.
Through these services we hope to give people the knowledge and skills they need to transform unwanted or broken items into something useful and beautiful!
We encourage skill and idea sharing and seek an alternative to a culture of cheap disposable items.
The Edinburgh Remakery is a brand new project based in the heart of Leith, led by social enterprise Remade in Edinburgh. It offers to its customers, retail and workspace areas, with a focus on quality products and services, where they are able to:
- Buy refurbished computers and second-hand furniture.
- Donate second hand technology, textiles and furniture.
- Learn to fix textiles, computers, mobile phones, and furniture.
- Participate in skill-learning workshops and courses.
The Edinburgh Remakery provides affordable and well-designed creative opportunities for individuals and groups; including workshops, free events, and training. Working in partnership with the University of Edinburgh and CHAI, The Edinburgh Remakery is one of five RE-use and Repair Hubs located throughout Scotland, which has been made possible with funding granted by Zero Waste Scotland.
