Repair Cafe at the ARC

A number of different tools including screwdrivers files and saw hung up on a wall.

What’s on offer?

Sometimes a very simple repair is all that is needed to fix a broken or damaged item. This saves the unnecessary cost of a replacement. When we send less waste to landfilll, environmental costs are also reduced and the whole community benefits! 

So come along and grab a coffee, tea, and tasty treats while your item is being assessed and hopefully repaired. This is a free event, open to students and members of the local community - no appointments needed.  Repair Cafe Glasgow can fix everything from clothes to electricals, and most things in-between. Here are some examples of items they work on regularly:  

Clothes: Their amazing textiles team can help you mend most issues with your favourite clothes. They've patched tears, fixed broken zips, replaced missing buttons, re-hemmed trousers, and event made minor alterations or adaptations to clothes. 

Small appliances: They've fixed toasters that won't stay down, food mixers that won't turn, coffee machines, lamps, radios, vacuum cleaners, irons, etc. If it's got a plug, they can take a look!
