Is your toaster always tripping? Or is your kettle wire exposed? Or is your standing fan busted? At this station you can learn how to identify electrical faults, splice wires and re-solder broken connections.
Have holes in your socks? Or have the buttons from your favourite shirt come loose? Perhaps the hem of your skirt has started to fray? Bring in articles of clothing or even fabric material to mend or re-purpose into something useful!
Do you have a stool that is wonky? Or perhaps a broken ceramic fridge magnet? Everyone has odds and ends around the house that could use a glue job or some simple fixes to make it more stable.
Join us at Repair Kopitiam!
WHERE AND WHEN:
Repair Kopitiam is held on the last Sunday of every month at Blk 897A, Tampines Street 81, and Block 444 Jurong West Ave 1, Singapore 64044. Check out our calendar and save the date!
WHAT ITEMS TO BRING:
Bring your broken electrical appliances, clothes that need mending, or broken household items that could use a new lease of life.
HOW TO REPAIR:
Our Repair Coaches will assess the condition of your item. If it’s within their repair capability, they will direct you to the appropriate station after making sure you have read and signed off on the Repair Kopitiam house rules.
You will be guided by our Repair Coaches to first diagnose the fault with the item, explore methods of rectification and then start repairing it. While our Repair Coaches have undergone some training before each session, it is quite possible that the repair job may not work out due unavailability of certain tools or spare parts.
If your item has been successfully repaired, bravo! If it is not possible to be repaired, do remember that you still have to bring it back and cannot leave it behind.
