Got something that’s broken? Want to try fixing it but not sure how?
Repair Cafes are free community events where you can bring your item and volunteer fixers will guide you through your repair.
This December, Repair Cafe Edinburgh will be returning to Meadowbank at the Edinburgh Tool Library. Our volunteers will be on hand to help you to repair your broken electrical, electronic and mechanical devices such as toys, small / low-voltage electricals, laptops… we’ll also have experts to help with fabrics and clothes, and bicycles.
Not everything’s fixable at our events – we’re limited by time, spare parts, safety, capacity – to avoid disappointment we encourage you to contact us beforehand. So if you’ve got something that you want to fix, you can email us at [email protected] to confirm suitability and to reserve your place. Or just turn up on the day and we’ll try to take a look.
Please note: At busy times you might need to wait for a volunteer to become available. Priority will be given to local residents and those with reserved places. Last repairs will begin at 4:30pm to allow time for finishing up.
The Tool Library is on the walkway between Lawrie Reilly Place and Meadowbank Shopping Park.
See you there!
