About the event
What is a Repair Cafe? It’s a community-based initiative that aims to promote sustainability by repairing items instead of throwing them away, reducing waste, and promoting a circular economy. It is part of a larger movement of Repair Cafes around the world, which began in the Netherlands in 2009 and has since spread to more than 50 countries.
Attendees can bring in their broken items, such as clothing, electronics, small appliances, bicycles, and furniture, and skilled volunteers will be on hand to provide free repair services and advice. Volunteers may also teach attendees how to repair their items independently in the future, thereby taking a more active role in reducing waste and increasing the longevity of their belongings. The Repair Cafe will be a regular monthly event held on the last Sunday of each month between 1-4 pm. Attendees are encouraged to bring any tools, materials, or parts that may be necessary for their repairs. Personal tools should be marked or labeled so they won’t get mixed up with the makerspace tools. Photos may be useful too. Please note that some projects may be beyond the scope of our available resources. Location: Makers Mill - all shops and our reading library stocked with handy DIY and fix-it publications. This event is open to ages 14+. We love our PETS too but the makerspace is not a place where they are safe so please leave them comfortably at home.
