Repair Cafe Woolloongabba is scheduled to return on the 15th of May 2021, and the local community will be able to bring their broken goods in for free repairs.



After a successful launch in March 2021, Repair Cafe Woolloongabba intends to host yet another fix-it session for interested locals. Repair cafes are unique in the way that they allow customers to bring in broken goods for free repairs conducted by volunteer workers.

The cafe’s volunteer Fixers will be able to cater to a wide range of damaged products, with each volunteer possessing the know-how and knowledge needed to fix a variety of items. Events such as this spare items from entering landfills. Repairs trump replacements in terms of cutting costs and saving the environment. 

Currently, Repair Cafe is in need of volunteers of any and all ages, genders and backgrounds with knowledge of the following skills: clothing and textile, bicycles, electrical appliances, furniture and wooden objects, information technology, knife sharpening, jewellery, or general glueing and fixing. 

The next Repair Cafe event will be hosted on the 15th of May 2021 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at 7 Burke Street, Woolloongabba. Those interested in participating can confirm their attendance via their Facebook event page. For more information, visit their website here. Follow their Facebook page for the latest updates and announcements concerning item repairs, volunteers, and upcoming events.
