Nillumbik Repair Cafe
Dates and bookings
The repair cafe is held on the second Saturday of every month. Click the REGISTER FOR EVENT button at right to visit our Humanitix page and see the dates of upcoming repair cafes. You can also use this link to book your item in for repair.
Booking isn’t essential, and you’re more than welcome to just turn up on the day. However, booking helps us work out in advance if your item is fixable, and make sure we have the right fixer available. When you book, you’ll be asked a little bit of information about your broken item to let us know what’s coming along. Please note that if things are busy, booked items will be prioritised over walk ins.
About the Repair Cafe
Nillumbik Repair Cafe is held monthly at the Hurstbridge Hub, in conjunction with one of the Edible Hub food swap and shares.
Repair cafes are a place you can bring your broken items to receive a new lease on life. At the repair cafe, volunteer fixers perform simple repairs on all kinds of everyday items that would otherwise be thrown out and sent to landfill. Attendees sit with the repairer while they talk you through what they’re doing, making it a place to have a chat, meet new people, and learn valuable DIY skills that can save money and reduce waste.
Items that can be repaired at the cafe include:
- musical instruments
- electronic devices
- mechanical items
- shoes and leather goods
- small furniture
- bric a brac
… and more!
