Repair Cafes at The Bower – Now Online

What is a Repair Cafe?

A repair cafe is a place where skilled repairers meet non-repairers to teach them skills to fix things. Repair Cafes originated in Europe, and the Bower was the first organisation to bring this concept to Australia. In the past we have encouraged our patrons to bring broken items into our workshops; after assessing the item our experts would offer advice on the best next steps.

In 2020 The Bower has moved its Repair Cafe program to the online space. We now offer online repair consultations via Zoom. Besides the forum, little else has changed; we offer sound and impartial advice.
