Daylesford Repair Cafe

Daylesford’s Repair Cafe is back for 2021, on the third Sunday of the month, after an extended covid lockdown break.

Our motto: ” There is no away” 

When: Sunday February 21st, 1-4pm – (always the 3rd Sunday of the month)

Where: Victoria Park Pavillion (off Daylesford-Ballan Rd)

With our team of fixers and supporters we are able to repair and mend:

  • clothes
  • bicycles
  • furniture
  • kitchen equipment
  • household appliances
  • gardening and workshop tools
  • electrical and music gear
  • precious items such as antique clocks
  • toys

We can also sharpen knives and tools.

At our March Cafe (21st March)  we’ll start our ‘Mending Broken Hearts’ table.

The Cafe serves coffee, tea and cakes along with conversations about how to repair and the economic viability of buying quality goods that can be repaired.

In addition to repairs, this year we will start a series of “how-to” workshops and practical demonstrations focusing on basic hand and machine sewing repairs to clothes, household and garden items, best ways to sharpen knives and tools and more.

We’re always looking for new fixers who can do general repairs, sew, repair jewellery, mend shoes, weld, fix toys and anything else.

Lost trades skills and workshops are coming up throughout the year- for example crocheting, metal work, knitting, natural dyeing, furniture making, wooden toys and more.

Come and join the Repair Cafe team. You’ll help to reduce waste, make things last, learn and share skills and challenge planned obsolescence.
