  • This event has passed.

Our special feature this session is a mobile phone repair demonstration. Sunil Ranjeet from Phonnic Repair Station and Jan Schmidt from Repair Cafe Albury-Wodonga will run two half hour workshops to demonstrate and discuss:

  • How to replace a cracked iphone 5 screen
  • Which makes and models have easier to replace screens
  • How to swap internal batteries in sealed phones
  • First aid for your mobile phone, including what to do if you drop your phone in water
  • How to remedy a phone charger that’s not working
  • Basic strategies for mobile phone care

Please note the workshops will each cover the same material. Also note we will NOT be repairing visitors’ phones. Cost is free, but numbers are capped and RSVP essential by midday Friday 6th April:

10.30-11.00am: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/repair-cafe-mobile-phone-repair-demo-tickets-43871371453?aff=es2

Do you have a broken household item you’d like fixed but need a hand to do so? Then this is your opportunity. Our Repair Café is a free meeting place to bring along broken household items such as bikes, furniture, clothing, battery-operated appliances and scratched DVDs-CDs 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.

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 (unless you’re attending the mobile phone repair demo), just come along with your broken item and we’ll do our best.
