Repair Café @ The Ottawa Tool Library
Dec 9 @ 11:00 – 17:00

Throw it Away? No Way! Fix it at the Repair Café!

The original Repair Café was launched in Amsterdam in 2009 by the niece of one of our Ottawa Tool Library supporters! Now a global movement, the Repair Café Foundation helps organizations like the Ottawa Tool Library host cafés in their own cities around the world. Repair Cafés are an international concept that has come to Ottawa with the goal of reducing landfill waste, teaching new skills, and building community!

Our first Repair Café in Ottawa was a huge success with volunteers fixing dozens of items and sharing their knowledge around everything from darning a sock to re-wiring a kettle. Join us on December 9th from 11am until 5pm at Maker Space North. There, as well as learning to fix you broken and torn items, you’ll find activities, treats, coffee, and a chance to connect with your greater community.

Some things to know about Repair Café:

Please bring only one item to be fixed, as time and space are limited. You may register your item to be fixed between 11 am and 4 pm.

Everyone is welcome at this free event, there will be activities for the little ones, coffee and snacks, and lots of people to meet and chat with.

Accessibility information:

Bay 216 is all on one level, accessed from the West side of the building, up a driving ramp found at the south end of the City Centre parking lot.

The doors are manual.

The bathrooms are large in the sink/mirror area, but the stalls are narrow.

There will be be vapors in use from glue and other solvents.

Repair Café is a free event, generously supported by the Ontario Trillium Foundation

If you would like to volunteer to be a fixer or helper at this, or future, Repair Cafes, please get in touch with [email protected]

Do you need work space to get your DIY projects done?

Maybe you don’t want to schlepp that big planer home or you just need to make a few cuts on a table saw. You can now do that every 2nd Sunday of every second month at our tool library.

Borrow the tools you need on site, without even having to drag them home! And best of all, benefit from the expertise and tips of Tool Ninjas and other Ottawa makers who will be on site to help you out.

Makers will share a workbench, with a max of two people per bench. Workbench space is limited and costs $5.00/hour, which must be reserved and paid for in advance via Eventbrite.

You may reserve for more than one hour. Painting, staining, and activities resulting in fumes are not permitted at Makerspace North.

Access to workbench space is available to Ottawa Tool Library members in good standing, and they will be asked to check in with their membership card upon arrival.

So, what will you build, refinish, repair, create, make?

Hours are 11am – 5pm
