Event description

Description


Repair Cafes are a worldwide movement to challenge design obsolescence and share fixing skills within our community.

Bring your item requiring repair to the Darebin Repair Cafe and our community of fixers will repair it. You sit with your personal 'fixer' and explain what is wrong with your item so you can learn how to repair it again in the future.

Fixing, instead of throwing out and purchasing another item saves resources and keeps skills in our community alive.Repairs on: bicycles, jewellery, shoes,general, glueing, darning, clothes, small machines, toys.


What to do -

1. Book a time slot here on eventbrite.

2. Email us with information on the item including photo and manual if available to transitiondarebin@gmail.com.

3. Turn up on the day. (come early, so there is time to look over your item)


Note - we may not always be able to repair an item - but best efforts will be made. if you know what parts are needed - please provide them on the day.


Pre-booking is essential as places are limited. People living in the council area of Darebin will be given first priority for tickets.


For more information on the session or if you can provide volunteer assistance on the day - Contact Transitiondarebin@gmail.com
