Event description

Description

Do you have broken items at home? Want to fix that bicycle, or piece of furniture or clothing that's not quite right? Come on down!

We hate the throw away nature of our society, but there are people out there who, as experts in their own field, know how to mend things - so we don't have to throw them out.

Repair cafes bring together these talented repairers with visitors who bring in their broken belongings. At repair cafes, there's a wonderful atmosphere of volunteers helping out others to bring old or broken items back to life - for free!

FAQs

What broken items can I bring into the event?

We’ll have repair stations for clothing, bikes, glue/string/tape and electrical (but see the FAQ below regarding electrical). For larger items, we generally say: “If you can carry it with your hands, bring it along”. If you’re not sure if you should bring it in, feel free to contact us.

What electrical items can be fixed at a repair cafe?

Appliances that are low voltage. So we’ll look at it if it’s powered by batteries, or if it has a plug pack/adapter (the black box that plugs into the wall with a cable going to the appliance and can be disconnected, like a cordless phone). We won’t look at anything that plugs directly into the powerpoint because those items carry 240 volts and our repairer would have to take liability for repairs, which we won’t burden him/her with.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Have a look on our website, or contact us.
