SPRING-MAKE-OVER & TRAINING
Our shop is getting a make-over but we're open for lending out tools from the library!
Re-opening of the shop, including a new look and new circular articles: to be expected at the end of April!
Also, together with Qrios, starting from April 19th, we organise a training on how to repair small household appliances. Want to know more? click.
MAAKbar reopened at a brand new location. You can find us at Dieststestraat 142, Leuven. We are open from Tuesday ‘till Saturday between 11am and 5pm. We stay open during the next lockdown.
Our services in this new hub?
> Lending of tools
You reserve whatever tools you need and you can pick them up at the hub. Since the start of our library-tool we've collected over 250 tools to share with you.
For more information about the tool-library and reservations, click the ‘tool library’-tab in the menu you see at the top of the page.
We now offer second-hand-fabrics.
Fabrics, wool, buttons, yarn, … still in perfect shape but not used, are offered a second home.
Drop by and choose your favourite piece of fabric to sew a little something new. Pay 40€ and have 5-time access to the whole fabric-bank.
> Circular products
In cooperation with social organisations in and around Leuven and with creative 'makers' we offer a lot of circular products for you to buy.
A backpack made out of discarded jeans, reusable greeting cards, earrings, lamps, ... you can buy them for yourself or as an original present!
> Guided tours about circular economy in the city
Come join us at one of our guided tours.
March 20th and April 10th at 2pm we start at Diestsestraat 142.
An enthusiastic guide will tell you all about circular economy in the city of Leuven.
We pass by a few repair-shops, 'de Kringwinkel' and entrepeneurs that choose to repair instead of throwing away.
> Repair cafés
We organise Repair Cafés every month, on the third Saturday of that month.
Reparations take place on reservation and are done by our volunteers.
Send an e-mail or drop by at MAAKbar during opening hours (Tu-Sat 11am – 5pm), before the actual repair-café and make a reservation.
After the repair café, we contact you and you can come pick up whatever we fixed for you.
