The FREE repair cafe operates weekly at The Bower in Marrickville, Wednesdays 1pm – 4pm. Pop in with your item in need of repair.
Repair Cafés are community spaces where people share knowledge and skills in repairing all kinds of items – electrical goods, clothing, furniture, bikes and more.
The Bower’s first Repair Café opened in 2014. Volunteer electrical technicians, bike mechanics and timber workers from the Marrickville Men’s Shed are on hand to advise and assist members of the community to fix dodgy small electrical items, rickety tables and chairs, and wobbly bicycles.
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. This isn’t about us fixing the items, it’s about us teaching you how to do it!
