Description

A Repair Café is a pop-up event that brings people together to learn how to repair things that would otherwise be thrown away.

Bring your broken items that will take around half an hour or less to repair such as clothing, electrical items, or small items of furniture. As part of the Repair Café ethos, you will be encouraged to get involved in the repairs and gain the confidence to start your own repairs.

When you book you will be asked to select a free ticket with a repair type and a time. This is to help us manage numbers in the venue and match your repair with the repairers we have available. Please book a free ticket for each item you are bringing.

Do support Quay Arts by having something to eat or drink before or after your repair is done

We put up details of the next event and things that we think will be interesting on our social media. You can find us on the following networks:
