Description

Repairing rather than buying new is a great way to take climate action in your own life – and learn new skills along the way.

Book your spot and bring along your item for repair or maintenance - clothing or lightweight household items (cushion covers etc), small electrical appliances, tech for repair, gardening tools for sharpening, metal items to be welded or that general item you've been meaning to have repaired.

Our skilled volunteers will be here to assist you with fixes such as missing buttons, tears, holes, hemming, electrical faults, and general fix-up repairs.

The afternoon is split into three one hour sessions for each repair category (1-2 pm, 2-3 pm, 3- 4 pm) with 8-10 spots in each.

Please take the time to provide us with the requested information when booking - this will ensure the triage process on entry, moves quickly.

These workshops are made possible thanks to funding from Wellington City Council and support from Repair Café Aotearoa NZ and Repair Café International.
