THE BOWER HAS FOUR LOCATIONS IN THE SYDNEY METROPOLITAN AREA, ALL DOING DIFFERENT THINGS WITHIN THE REUSE AND REPAIR WORLD.
Marrickville STORE & HQ
Marrickville is our headquarters and flagship store. Aside from being our beloved 20 year old store, Marrickville is also home to our office staff and regular Repair Cafes.
Our Parramatta store is the second shopfront that we’ve opened and an important base from which we serve the communities of Western Sydney. We hold regular workshops there, including school holiday workshops for kids, and every quarter we hold the popular ParraPickers Flea Market in the street around our shop there. It is also the location of Parramatta Women’s Shed.
redfern: THE BOWER WOODWORKS
The Bower Woodworks is located within 107 Projects, a highly regarded arts hub and community space. The Woodworks is accessed via the lane behind 107. We hold regular carpentry workshops here, and our talented team work on bespoke projects, creating our signature Bower items out of recycled materials that are sold in our stores. It also hosts the Men’s Shed every Thursday. Click through for more information on the Bower’s Wood Workshops.
GREEN SQUARE: BANGA COMMUNITY SHED
Banga Community Shed is now open! The shed is a community hub for skill sharing and repairs of electronics. You can bring your items here for repair, or get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org if you have electrical experience and would like to volunteer your time helping others. In future we’ll be running electrical Repair Cafes, workshops, tagging and testing services and a tool library. We’ll be rolling these services early in 2019 – click through to our Banga Community shed page to learn more.
