What is a repair café?

Repair Cafés offer you the ability to learn how to fix toys or furniture that have broken or are in need of repair. Usually these are ran in person, however we are now launching a virtual repair café where we will provide live video support to find out the problem with your item and support you through making the repair yourself.

How long are the sessions?

The session is ran over almost an entire day, starting at 10am, running until 4pm. However you do not need to be available for the entire time. You can “drop in” any time through the session.

How do the sessions run?

The session will be live online between 10am-4pm on timetabled days. You can drop in with your item for repair at any time during these times, you do not need to stay on for the whole session, just long enough to get your item repaired.

The team will great you and ask a few questions about your item. These questions will help us to match you with one of our Fab team for them to support you in your repair journey. Once matched with our team, they will work with you to try to repair your item. Whilst we can’t guarantee that we can help to fix everything, we will do our best to support you to try and get your item back in working order.

      Hi Steve,
      We can certainly take a look at it with you during the session. Whilst we cannot guarantee we will be able to support fixing everything, we will do our best to provide you with as much information and guidance as possible in repairing the item.
      Please drop in any time on Friday between 10am-4pm and we will match you up with the best team member to support the repair.
      Many Thanks,
      FabLab Coventry team
