Do you fancy DIY and would you like to test your skills? Are you wondering if that old kettle might be repaired? And what about that suit that’s been in the closet for years, waiting to be fixed?

Take them on Saturday, June 1st to the Repair Café in RI-PIAZZA – the Festival of creative recycling for adults, children, families and schools organized in the square of Cavareno.

During the whole day Cavareno will host several creative workshops and demonstrations, exhibition spaces, craft and artistic creations on display and playful activities dedicated to everything that can be made with recycled materials.

Restart Party Do’s and Don’ts

DO

  • Check if your device is still within warranty, you may be eligible for a free repair, replacement or a refund. (Which? helps in the UK).
  • Take responsibility for your device and your data. Our volunteers are here to help you learn to fix your gadget, not to provide a free repair service. Get involved!
  • Backup your data. We can’t be responsible for your cat pics, so please back up your device before you come. (Of course you already do this once a month, right?)
  • Charge up your device and bring all leads.
  • Get in touch with organisers if you have any questions about whether a fix is possible.

DON’T

  • Assume repairs will be successful. We help fix over half of devices at our events. Even if your repair is unsuccessful, you will learn about your device and why it failed.
  • Expect us to have spare parts. But we can help you source them. Often people visit twice: first we’ll help diagnose the fault, then you source the spare part, and on your return we’ll help you do a replacement.
  • Attempt a mobile screen repair just to save money. DIY mobile screen repair is a learning opportunity first and foremost. Please see our advice page first.
  • Bring a microwave.
