I co-founded Repair Café Glasgow in 2017, and The Pram Project in 2020. I’m always tinkering and looking for ways to fix things, and maybe even improve them. I haven’t figured out a way to wear a Covid mask and glasses without them fogging up, so I’m always laying them down and finally sat on them. CRUNCH. Here’s my funky ugly home grown solution for crunched glasses. 

Some metal wire from a champagne bottle that fit through existing holes in the frames, and some mouldable plastic (like Coolmorph or similar) did the trick. My family would say ‘I really Dawesed this one.’ ‘Dawesing’ is using what you have for an effective fix, even if it’s not pretty.
