Don't Toss It - Fix It
Repair Cafés are free meeting places that are all about repairing things (together). At the Repair Cafe, you’ll find tools and materials to help you make any repairs you need. You can repair furniture, electrical appliances, bicycles, toys, etc. There are even sewing machines to mend clothing. You'll also find expert volunteers, with repair skills in all kinds of fields. Visitors bring their broken items from home, and in the Repair Café, they start making their repairs, together with the specialists. It’s an ongoing learning process. If you have nothing to repair, you can hang out and enjoy a cup of coffee and a snack, or you can lend a hand with someone else’s repair job. You can also get inspired at the reading table – by leafing through books on DIY repairs.

Educational and Fun
You make the repair yourself with the help of an expert. You can gain confidence in making your own repairs in the future. We even have a reference table that may give you ideas for DIY repairs you can try.
