10:30am to 1:30pm, Saturday 18th Nov 2023 – book a free slot here:

What do you do with a chair when the leg as come loose? A lamp that no longer works? A toaster that doesn’t toast? A holey jumper? Throw it away? No way! We are hosting afternoons of fixing and skill-sharing.

The Broadwater Farm Repair Café is a community even where local people get together to fix broken things and learn new skills. Repair Cafés aim to help people learn to fix and\or help others to fix, to bring about a shift in consumerism and to throw less away. We skill-share and build community. We try to match people who want to fix something broken with experienced fixers who can help. Don’t leave it in a cupboard or throw it away – fix it. We help you get into the habit of repairing and reusing things, saving you money and helping us all.

Let us know on the order form what time suits you and what you are bringing.

If you have skills you can share, please bring along any tools you use (we already have a wide range) and help us help others – let us know on the order form you can help. Swap skills too – you help to fix mine and I’ll help to fix your broken stuff.

Here is a list of all our forthcoming Repair Cafés
