Rosie the Restarter

We want to bring gender diversity to our community repair events and empower women and non-binary people to open the lid and get stuck in repairing.

We believe everyone should have the right to repair. We believe everyone should have the capacity to take full ownership of their devices.

We organise skillshares run for/by women and non-binary people. They create a space to share, boost confidence and get technical together.

Upcoming parties

We host bi-monthly skillshares in our London 3Space. These workshops are led by volunteers and designed to strengthen our community outreach work.


    Here are some of the people who you'll meet at Rosie events

    Restarter profile: Meet Monique

    Monique is a software developer who loves simple fixes and a decent pair of shoes. She fondly remembers her math teacher who abandoned the curriculum to teach her Fortran.

    Restarter Profile: Meet Stefania

    An Italian sound engineer, she shocked her future course convenors by acing the entrance exam, as a woman. Stefania loves repairing at community events because it helps her feel connected to others.
