At the Repair Café it's all about fiddling together in a relaxed atmosphere and having a coffee or tea while repairing broken things (alone or together with others) and sharing knowledge on a subject area. Tools and materials for all kinds of repairs are available, so clothing, furniture, electrical appliances, bicycles, toys and much more can be fixed. Also repair experts are on site: electricians, tailors, carpenters and mechanics.
The aim of the Repair Café is to jointly counter the disposable culture with sustainability and (repair) knowledge. Often appliances and really treasured possessions are discarded, because a repair is not worth it and it is cheaper to just buy something new as a replacement. The Repair Café is open for anyone interested. There is a lively atmosphere with many people pottering and tinkering. Every time it's different because we do not know in advance exactly who will come, which stuff will be brought along and which experts on site!
