What is a Repair Café?
community gatherings where visitors get their broken household items fixed, FREE OF CHARGE, with the help of experienced volunteers.
At a typical event, you can expect to see fixing stations for Electronics, Small Appliances, Textile, Jewelry, Woodwork and Bikes. Anything that is broken is welcome.
The idea was originated from the Netherlands, it has since become an international movement.
We at MVRC are working on bringing Repair Cafés to a community near you, throughout Lower Mainland.
