Event Description

What do you do with a chair when the leg has come loose? A lamp that no longer works? A toaster that doesn't toast? A holey jumper? Throw it away? No way! We are hosting afternoons of fixing and skill-sharing.
Please book here: HaringeyFixers.org
Repair Cafés are community events where local people get together to fix broken things and learn new skills, free of charge.

Repair Cafés aim to help people learn to fix things, to bring about a shift in consumerism and so throw less away.

We skill-share and build community.

Bring something that needs fixing and let us help you fix it - we have experienced fixers who can help and some tools you might need. Don't leave it in a cupboard or throw it away - fix it.
Let us know in the booking process what time suits you and what you are bringing. We don't charge for help - we're people who give our time for free.

If you want to share your own skills, please come along and help us help others - just book any free session and let us know on the order form you can help. Why not bring along your own broken stuff too?
