Fremantle Repair Cafe

The Fremantle Repair Cafe returns to Stackwood for its third year of tinkering, mending and fixing. This community event is an absolute powerhouse when it comes to reducing household waste in our neighbourhood.

The cafe is designed to teach you how to fix household items and divert them from landfill. You can bring in your item and an experienced volunteer repairer from the local community with help you jointly repair objects such as clothing, toys, small furniture, electrical goods (must have an AC adaptor or be battery operated), bikes and more. There's also device help for phones, tablets, and laptops, and a gluing/taping workstation. 

Repairs are being made for free, but donations are warmly received.

There's no need to make an appointment just come on down during the times below leaving plenty of time for your item to be repaired. 

Please only bring items that you can carry in and out of the space, if they are larger they may be a project better suited to you fixing at home.

All items that cannot be fixed can be dropped off just up the road at the Fremantle Recycling Centre.
