Repair Cafe

September 12, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

What is a Repair Cafe?

Our society revolves around consumption. Personal consumption of durable goods add up to 8% of GDP, and non-durable goods add up to 15%, totaling about $4 trillion dollars annually in the USA! The more we buy, the more we throw away, often during the first year! And… most people no longer know how to repair things.

A Repair Cafe celebrates fixing through a fun, collaborative, hands-on, fix-n-learn, community-based discovery and disassembly. People bring us their broken, non-functioning things — small electronics and appliances, toys, bicycles, clothing, jewelry, etc.– for assessment, disassembly, and — hopefully — repair.
