Repair Café

At Repair Café Bassendean, you’ll find tools and materials to help you make any repairs you need to your much loved items.  Repair Café Bassendean is an initiative based in Bassendean that aims to minimise waste and strengthen our community. All are welcome.

Post-consumer waste has become a huge problem in modern society, and this partly stems from a culture of discarding broken or unused items, including clothing and electronics. We’re here to help those in our community who want to save their items from landfill and bring back a culture of repairing.
