Our RepairWorks Online experts assist the community remotely with repair of furniture, electronics, bikes and clothing. Partnering councils are given a 5% discount. We also host weekly Facebook LIVE workshop events, free of charge, every Saturday Morning at 11am. For more information or to book a session for your community, please contact Guido Verbist on

Partnering councils are entitled to a 20% discount on both workshops and Repair Cafes, and we can deliver these at your chosen location, at a time and date that suits you. To enquire, please contact Guido on

The Bower runs workshops and Repair Cafes for councils, community groups and private organisations across the greater Sydney region for sustainability education programs. We can also accommodate other reuse, upcycling or creative workshop ideas – just get in touch to discuss as our facilitators have a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences.
