Repair Café

041Got things which need some TLC, are perhaps a bit broken and you haven’t had the time or skills to fix them yourself? Don’t throw them away, bring them to our repair café, and our volunteers will have go at fixing them.

SHARE Oxford organises Repair Cafés at various locations in the city, generally every first Sunday of every odd month between 14:00 – 17:00.

We have a mix of experts and complete beginners all willing to get stuck in so that they may keep their repair skills and knowledge alive, share it with us, save money and reduce our resource consumption footprint. Even if your item can’t be fixed or you come along without anything to fix, you will still have a great time, meet new people and learn new skills. Sometimes, we also have free cake!

Next event

Our next event will be at Common Ground Cafe, Little Clarendon Street, OX1 2HF on the 12th May 2019 14:00 – 17:00. We take pre-bookings for the first two hours, and for the last hour we have a waiting list on first come first served basis. Click on the poster image to read all about it! Please feel free to download it, print it, and display it around your local area.

Book your item

Please note that the booking form is now closed!

… however, we would still love you to come along for the good vibe, and perhaps even bring your item as we may end up having time on our hands throughout the event, and most likely during the last hour. Turn un any time before 4pm we will put you in the waiting list!

Volunteer with us

Even if you’re a professional or a repair enthusiast, we’re always happy to hear from new volunteers! We would check and trust that your interest in performing repairs relies on some degree of experience and knowledge. Before you volunteer with us, we will ask to what level you would rate your skills, and we would allow you to take the lead on a repair of a certain type only if you rate your skills as intermediate or above. To express your interest or to find out more, send us an email at repaircafe@shareoxford.org.
