Event Details

WE ARE STILL OPERATIONAL IN CURRENT WEATHER CONDITIONS -- PLEASE COMMUTE SAFELY TO OUR LOCATION AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO HELPING REPAIR ITEMS :)

Bring your broken or flawed: COMPUTER, FURNITURE, ELECTRICAL APPLIANCES, TOYS, CLOTHES, Etc!!!!

You can repair it at Repair Café! A group of volunteers are waiting to help you realize that not everything that brakes needs to be a hassle to fix or to be replaced! Come and experience a great new project that is continuing to grow in popularity and even learn something!! 

Repair Cafe is about repairing things together, receiving expert advice, and meeting others to be inspired.

If you don't have anything that is broken, but would still like to participate or come and see how it works -- You are WELCOME to participate and tell your friends!

This event is hosted by KWArtzLab and TransitionKW. There is NO COST to get your items repaired! Donations are welcomed.

In the case that we have a small volume of participants we are asking that you only bring ONE item to be repaired. If all repair volunteers are busy we will hand out numbers to keep a "next to be repaired" line.
