Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Saturday 19th June 2021
Repair cafes are community events which match people with broken household items with skilled volunteers or specialists who like fixing things.We're fixing items and building community. Come along and you might pick up some new fixing skills.
You will be able to bring household items for smaller repairs – examples include:
Electrical repairs (no large appliances, microwaves and electric blankets)
Small furniture or miscellaneous household items
Clothing & leather
One item will be accepted per household, although if it’s not too busy, additional items may be repaired. It will be at the discretion of the Repair Café and the volunteers as to whether an item is suitable for repair, and you’ll be encouraged to observe and engage so that you can pick up new skills too.
Whilst you’re visiting, it’s also a great opportunity to browse the extensive ReStore shop and grab a coffee at their café.
