Do you have a broken household item you’d like fixed but need a hand to do so? Then this is your opportunity.

As a once-off special we’ll demonstrate how to replace torn/old fly screens. With fly and mossie season just ’round the corner, there’s no better time to learn this skill. Please note this is a demonstration only i.e. don’t bring in your broken screens. We’ll teach techniques for both wooden and aluminium-framed fly screens. The demonstrations will be conducted every hour, on the hour i.e. at 10.00am, 11.00am and 12.00pm. We sincerely thank Kellys Wodonga, of 88 Elgin Boulevard, for kindly donating the aluminium fly wire and cord used in our demonstrations.

Our Repair Café is a free meeting place to bring along broken household items such as furniture, clothing, battery-operated appliances, books and bikes and learn how to fix them with the help of experienced, volunteer repairers. You can also bring along small, blunt garden tools like secateurs and we’ll show you how to sharpen them. Maximum three items per person per session.

Please note we are unable to offer jewellery repairs during this session, but hope to reintroduce them in October.

Repair Cafes are a great way to save money, bypass landfill, extend the life of belongings and learn the art of repair.

Toss it? No way. You can repair it at the Repair Café – we are open the first Saturday of each month (except January). Please note we are not a pick up and drop-off repair service – we want visitors to get involved and learn from the repair process.

No need to register, just come along with your broken item and we’ll do our best. And if you have a guitar that needs some TLC, get in touch and we’ll put you on our waiting list – because from time to time we’ll have a guitar repairer on hand too.
