Do you have a broken household item you’d like fixed but need a hand to do so? Then this is your opportunity.
 
This month we’re offering a textiles upcycling advice station where you can ask Angela and Shelley how you might convert a business shirt into child’s overalls (see photo), a doona into a teepee, pair of jeans into a bag and so on. They’ve had lots of experience and are full of practical ideas to get you started. Please note conversions won’t be conducted on-site – it’s just an advice service.
 
We’re also featuring the return of our popular device help desk to assist with problematic mobile phones, tablets and laptops e.g. how to save data from a dying phone, change settings, speed up slow laptops and investigate problems booting up. Please note we will not physically open phones, reinstall operating systems or attempt tasks that are likely to take more than about half an hour.
 
Our Repair Café is a free meeting place to bring along broken household items such as furniture, clothing, battery-operated appliances, scratched CDs-DVDs, 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 NO soldering NOR jewellery repairs this session.
