Repair Kopitiam

A community initiative by Sustainable Living Lab

We’re driving a local movement to combat the buy and throw-away culture in Singapore.

Learn To Fix what?

Electrical - Woodwork - Fabric - Toys - More

ELECTRICAL REPAIR... Is your oven tripping? Or is your iron wire frayed? Or your fan has stopped working? Learn to diagnose and fix their faults! FABRIC REPAIR... Did you rip your shirt? Did your bag just give way? Is the zip stuck? You've lost your button? Learn to mend fabric or re-purpose/make them into other useful things! MECHANICAL REPAIR A shaky stool? Broken toy? The handle came off your pot? Many items can be easily fixed if you know how to.

What items to bring?

How to fix it?

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.
