Unley Repair Cafe

Next date: Saturday, 29 June 2024 | 09:30 AM to 12:30 PM


Toss it? No way... fix it!

Do you have a broken, torn or busted household item? Bring it along to the Unley Repair Cafe and learn how to fix it with the help of some expert repairers.

The Unley Repair Cafe is a monthly free, open community event aiming to divert items from landfill, pass on valuable repairing knowledge, and connect community.

Our sessions typically include electronic, clothing, shoe, furniture, bike, jewellery, mechanical and general repairs, depending on repairer availability.

Please note:

  • we are not a drop-off service - you must be willing to sit with/assist the repairer and learn how to fix your item
  • one item at a time per person, to allow everyone the opportunity to participate. If you have more than one item you may 're-join the queue' after your first item has been attended to
  • last repairs at 12noon, or earlier if we are very busy! Our session ends at 12.30pm sharp, so please arrive well before this to enable enough time for repairs
  • we will have a large range of tools and equipment needed to make repairs, but we do not keep a stock of spare parts. We will have bits and pieces (screws, buttons, etc), but if your repair requires a specific spare part, please purchase before the session. We may be able to help you diagnose the issue to determine what part you need
  • your item must be small enough to carry through the doors - no whitegoods or vehicle repairs
  • the Unley Repair Cafe is free to attend, though any donations are greatly appreciated.

Everyone is welcome, no matter what council you're from - even if you don't have an item to repair.

Come and connect with your neighbours, see what's being repaired - and maybe learn a new skill!

The Unley Repair Cafe runs on the last Saturday of every month, and is closed for the summer months. Like the Unley Repair Cafe Facebook page to stay in the loop with upcoming events. We're always looking for session volunteers, so if you'd like to be involved (either repairing or supporting), please get in touch with Ruby (Unley Repair Cafe Coordinator) at repaircafe@sustainablecommunitiessa.org.au or visit unleyrepaircafe.wordpress.com

The Unley Repair Cafe is supported by Sustainable Communities SA Inc.
