Repair Cafe At The Stoneybatter Festival

The Stoneybatter Festival is a 3-day neighbourhood festival in the heart of Dublin 7 from June 21-23 June, 2024.

There will be many events over the 3 days in locations throughout Stoneybatter with an Eco Hub, Clothes Swap, Book Swap, Organic Gardening and lunch more. We are joining the festival with a Repair Cafe.

Do you have broken items at-home – small appliances, toys, household items, electronics?

No need to throw them away!
Save your things from the landfill and your wallet from having to replace them.

Bring them to our repair café and learn how to fix them together with our volunteers. We have tools, materials, space to work on your item, and repair experts who will help you with your repair.

Join us in Tog on Saturday 22nd of June from 11am – 4pm in the Aughrim Street Scout Group, D07YE30.

A repair cafe is a community gathering place where people can bring their broken items, such as appliances, household items, or electronics, to be repaired by skilled volunteers for free. The idea behind repair cafes is to promote sustainability and reduce waste by encouraging people to repair and reuse their belongings instead of throwing them away.

At a repair cafe, visitors can learn how to repair their items themselves or watch and learn from the volunteers. Repair cafes also offer a social atmosphere where people can connect with others who share their interest in repairing, reducing waste, and promoting sustainability.

Our passionate team of skilled volunteers will be on hand to help you fix everything from electronics and appliances to furniture, all while sharing valuable repair skills and promoting a sustainable lifestyle.

At our Repair Café , you can:

  • Learn essential repair techniques from our expert makers and volunteers
  • Discover the joy of fixing things and reducing waste in a collaborative, community-focused environment
  • Connect with like-minded individuals who are passionate about sustainability and the maker movement

So grab your broken treasures and join us for a day of mending, learning, and connection at Tog Hackerspace Repair Café. Together, we can build a more sustainable future and celebrate the power of repair!

If we can’t fix your items, we will do our best to make suggestions on where to get spare parts or the best recycling options for you to continue your journey of repair.

What objects can you bring in?

  • Toys
  • Small electrical appliances and electronics
  • Household Items
    … and many other things!
    Safety (PAT) testing for electrical devices will be available.
