Repair Workshop Calendar

Repair workshops – where sustainability meets community!

Whether you're looking to mend a torn sweater or repair a misbehaving smartphone, opportunities exist to meet up with skilled volunteers and professionals and learn valuable skills, reduce waste, and engage with your community.  At many of our listed Repair Workshops, the emphasis is on empowerment. Instead of simply handing over your item for repair, you're guided through the fixing process by seasoned experts. It's a learning experience that equips you with the skills to tackle future repair needs, creating a cycle of sustainability and self-reliance.
