WNC Repair Cafe is a place where you’ll find volunteers with tools and supplies, available to fix broken objects while offering instruction in the form of hands on help. This is a free program where you are encouraged to bring in your broken appliance, stuck zipper, rusty tools, old bicycle, dull pruning shears – whatever you can imagine – and work with our volunteers to make the necessary repairs to keep it running.
Repair Cafes across the world have helped build resilient communities by offering access to hands on experience in the art of repair. At WNC Repair Cafe we’ll gather volunteers from the area for an evening of helping a neighbor, learning by doing, sharing ideas and reducing waste.
House Rules – Please Read!
Volunteers perform work free of charge.
WNC Repair Cafe will aim to keep regular supplies on hand. We reserve the right to ask fair compensation for supplies required. Donations in excess of the cost of supplies are greatly appreciated and will help grow our inventory of readily available supplies.
Ordering special order parts is not the responsibility of WNC Repair Cafe or it’s volunteers. Providing as much information about your repair before arrival will help ensure adequate time to procure special parts.
Participants offering items for repair do so at their own risk. Understand that it’s possible your item may not be repairable by our volunteers, or, may be damaged in the process of attempting repair.
Volunteers reserve the right to refuse items for repair. Please, clean your item prior to attending the event, and be polite! It is not the responsibility of WNC Repair Cafe or it’s volunteers to re-assemble or dispose of any unsuccessfully repaired items.
Please! Participants should offer one item for repair at a time. This helps make sure that at busy nights, everyone gets a chance to participate.
Volunteers and Participants will be required to sign in, including signing a release of liability waiver prior to performing work on site during a WNC Repair Cafe Event.
