Volunteers at a Restart Party fixing devices, cropped on hands

Description

Canberra Repair Cafe is a Canberra Environment Centre activity for fixing everyday household items, from clothing to bicycles. Volunteers will help you save your stuff from landfill and learn new skills.

This event is volunteer-run and self-sufficient, so if you have tools or materials you can use for your own repairs or share with others, do bring them along.

Tea and coffee available. Free entry, small donations encouraged. Register via Eventbrite.

We buy glue and other consumables with any donations from guests/volunteers and use donated or shared tools.

Hughes Repair Cafe

We will have electricians, handy people and our talented needleworkers (sewers) available to repair all your goods and assist you to learn a new skill or two. 

This event is volunteer-run and self-sufficient, so if you have tools or materials you can use for your own repairs or share with others, do bring them along.

Tea and coffee available. Free entry, small donations encouraged.

We use donations from guests to buy glue and other consumables for the repairers.

** This cafe was previously known as the Canberra Repair Cafe and run at the Canberra Environment Centre. It moved to Hughes in 2023 and supported by the SEE-Change Woden group since 2024. **
