Repair Cafe – This Saturday! (9/24/16)

See below for more information.


Repair Cafe – Saturday 9/24/16, 1-3pm @ The Center for Craft Creativity and Design (67 Broadway St, Asheville, North Carolina 28801). Bring your old electronics to repair or help out with your expertise. Registration preferred, drop ins welcome!

Registration preferred (click here), walk-ins still welcome.

A repair cafe is an event where participants can bring their broken electronics and small appliances, and engage in the process of fixing them. We will provide tools, materials, and most importantly knowledgeable volunteers, available to assist in the repair effort. No former fix-it experience is necessary. All are welcome to participate; volunteers to help are also welcome.

For more information feel free to contact:

This event is held in conjunction with The Future of Fixing, on view at Benchspace Gallery & Workshop September 2, 2016 – January 20, 2017.
