Winchester Repair Café

Who is this for?

Get things mended, and learn how to do it yourself next time. What do you do with a chair when the leg has come loose? With a toaster that no longer works? Or a woollen jumper with moth holes? Toss it? No way!

This meeting of the Repair Café is on Saturday 1st August between 10.30am and 12.30pm at the Winchester Discovery Centre, Jewry Street, Winchester SO23 8SB.

You can repair it free at the Repair Café!Repair Cafés are free and they’re all about repairing things (together). You’ll find tools and materials to help you make repairs to clothes, furniture, electrical appliances, bicycles, crockery, appliances, toys, et cetera.

You will also find repair specialists such as electricians, seamstresses, carpenters and bicycle mechanics.
Visitors bring their broken items. Together with the specialists they start making their repairs in the Repair Café.

If you have nothing to repair, you can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee. Or you can lend a hand with someone else’s repair job.

If the cafe is busy, we will have to restrict it to one item per visitor.
