If an item is broken, why not fix it? Don't throw it away.

This is the concept behind Repair Cafe Ballarat, a free event where community members meet to share skills and fix items that would otherwise go to landfill.

If you have a broken item, come in to Repair Cafe Ballarat with what you think you will need to fix it. You will be paired with a volunteer fixer to work on the repair while learning how to do it yourself along the way.

Repair Cafe Ballarat has expert volunteers with repair skills in all types of fields including repairs to clothes, electrical appliances, bicycles, crockery and toys.

If you have nothing to repair, you can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee, talk with like-minded people, or sign up as a volunteer to offer your repair skills and share your knowledge.
