Repair Café @ Lee Valley Tools
Feb 17 @ 10:30 – 16:30

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

Our last Repair Café in Ottawa was a huge success with volunteers fixing over seventy  items and sharing their knowledge around everything from darning a sock to re-wiring a kettle.

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!

Some things to know about this Repair Café:

This Repair Café is only for wood furniture & objects. We will also be sharpening tools.

Repair Café is an international movement to reduce landfill, share skills, and create community!

Please bring only one item to be fixed, as time and space are limited. You will need to register beforehand by selecting a time slot here on Eventbrite or calling Lee Valley at 613-596-9202.

If your item is missing a piece or needs a replacement part, please bring that as well.

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

Accessibility information:
