The City of Canada Bay is partnering with the Bower Reuse and Repair Centre to provide a monthly Repair Café, held on the second Saturday of each month during 2017, starting in February. Bower technicians will be on hand to advise and assist members of the community to fix dodgy small electrical items and rickety furniture items such as tables and chairs. Residents of the City of Canada Bay are invited to bring their own items requiring repair along and technicians will take time to explain the repair process to every participant, helping you to learn new skills and understand the benefits of repairing and reusing.
Small Electricals Repair Café
From lamps to stereo equipment, vintage desk fans and radios to remote control cars… our electrical technicians have fixed them all. Sometimes a simple re-soldering of a join or replacing a broken plug is all that is needed to get those electrical goods working again. If we can’t fix it, we can safely recycle it through e-waste collections.
Timber Furniture Repair Café
Chairs, stools and side tables are the most common timber items brought to the Repair Café for a quick fix. Our woodworkers explain the process of fixing the item to show how simple it can be to restore a broken item to functional furniture.
Please note: Bookings are essential as capacity is limited. This event is only open to residents of the City of Canada Bay. Proof of residency may be required.
In the case that this event is fully booked, your details will be added to an automated waitlist.
