Sententia Vera Cultural Hub to open Repair Cafe

Staff Report

DRIPPING SPRINGS — Sententia Vera LLC, the parent company of Sententia Vera Cultural Hub, is joining the Fixer Movement with its Repair Cafe located at 4002 U.S. Highway 290, a space with a mix of maker and DIY. 

“What do you do with a broken toaster? Or with a garbled Powerpoint file or Excel spreadsheet? Or with a favorite clothing item with a snag or holes? Delete it? Toss it? No way! Sententia Vera LLC is organizing the first Repair Cafe at The Cultural Hub,” said Teresa Carbajal Ravet, M.A., owner, in a press release. 

Repairing is the fourth “R” of environmentalism after Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. According to a Nov. 15 press release, The Repair Cafe at The Hub will foster a “fixer culture” that promotes shared learning and pooling knowledge, promoting the empowerment of people through autonomy and intergenerational exchange — throwing things away will no longer be the norm. 

The idea of Repair Cafes began in the Netherlands and has continued popping up around the world. It focuses on sustainability as various volunteer repair “experts” will be available to help make possible repairs free of charge. People are also invited to bring broken items from home, with any tools they might have. 

Ravet also pointed out that repairs can save money and resources and minimize CO2 emissions. 

The Cultural Hub will come in January 2023.
