Skill Share & Repair Cafe

The RVCC Skill Share & Repair Café is a free meeting place that’s all about repairing things (together) and sharing skills and experience! Here, you’ll find friendly volunteers to help you make repairs you need. If they can’t help you on site, they can office advice or referrals. On clothes, furniture, consumer electronics, bicycles, appliances, toys, et cetera.

Here’s how it works. Visitors bring their broken items from home. Together with the specialists they start making their repairs in the Repair Café. It’s an ongoing learning process. If you have nothing to repair, you can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee. Or you can lend a hand with someone else’s repair job.

Here’s a list of Partners and Skills offered at this event:
