Repair Café Sheridan
Reduce, reuse and recycle…plus repair! Recycling is not the solution. Repairing is a better option. If you have a broken household item and don’t know what to do with it, instead of throwing it out, consider to bring it to Sheridan’s next Repair Café.
Sheridan is the first higher education institution in Canada hosting a Repair Café on campus. At the Repair Café, you can receive help on fixing your broken item, anything from computers and electronics to small appliances and clothes. Fixers, or volunteers who are skilled at doing repairs, not only help visitors fix their items but also show them how they do the repairs. This is a free event and everyone is welcome to participate.
Since its launch in April 2014, Sheridan has hosted twelve Repair Cafés, all receiving very positive responses from the community.
We will be hosting our upcoming Repair Café on November 29, 2018 at the Hazel McCallion campus. It will be held on the first floor of Creative Commons in B-Wing from 11:30am to 2pm.
