Event description

What is a Repair Cafe?

Cost: Free
About: You can bring your broken items and we’ll put you on the path to fixing them. This is a free advice service, not a guaranteed repair. Come along, have a cuppa and our skilled repairers will do their best to help. Repair Cafes originated in Europe, and the Bower was the first to bring this concept to Australia. Generally we are only able to look at one item per person.

Items we repair: Small electronics, wood furniture. Please note we are unable to repair microwaves or large whitegoods within the timeframe of a Repair Cafe.

Please bring a notepad and pen to take any notes that may be helpful afterward.

Volunteer electrical technicians and The Bower's timber workers are on hand to advise and assist members of the community to fix dodgy small electrical items, or rickety tables and chairs. We take time to explain the repair process to every participant, helping them to learn new skills and understand the
benefits in repairing and reusing.

Please note that parking on Hunter Street is free for fifteen minutes only.  You can park in the Justice Precinct Car Park for $3 an hour on Saturdays. Please also note that bike repair is not available at Parramatta.
