Description

Fixing Club at 228

6:30pm – 9pm third Thursday of the month

Do you like fixing electrical stuff?

Do you think you might like fixing electrical stuff?

Come to Forest Fixers’ Repair Club, spend the evening fixing with others and share your skills. If you don’t have your own stuff to fix, we can find something for you. You can bring your own tools and/or you can use ours.

This is the first of many repair clubs and we will also be offering some training (at The Mill E17 from 27th June 2023).

This is different from a repair cafe where people turn up with their broken stuff to be fixed. This is for people who want to learn to fix or for people who can fix already and want to share their skills with others.

Repair Club is FREE but you are expected to volunteer for at least two repair cafes a year as a fixer, a host or a data inputter.

Just turn up or contact [email protected] for further details.

Forest Fixers

Welcome to Forest Fixers.

We hold repair cafes and we have a repair club which meets a couple of times a month.

Forest Fixers' Repair Cafes

This is where people bring their small electrical items (toasters, lamps, radios etc) so that we can help you fix them. You can book on Eventbrite https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/forest-fixers-75216927483 and we will send you a time slot a couple of days before the event. One of our fixers will help you fix your gadget or small appliance (sorry no microwaves).

Forest Fixers' repair clubs

These are skill-sharing (and sometimes training) sessions for people who want to help out at our repair cafes and would like to upgrade their skills. Everyone from beginners to experts welcome! You can bring your own tools or use ours. All repair clubs take place on a Tuesday from 6:30pm - 9pm. You are welcome to come to just part of the session. Please book by selecting the RSVP button for the sessions you would like to come to.

Our main base is at:

The Mill

7-11 Coppermill Lane

London E17 7HA

The nearest station is St James Street (Liverpool Street to Chingford Line), which is just round the corner from The Mill

or a 12 minute walk from Walthamstow Central (Victoria Line) or Queens Road (Barking to Gospel Oak Line).

There is plenty of cycle parking right outside The Mill
