Repair Cafe – March 22

Repair Cafe

Do you have a household item that needs fixing? If so, March 22 is your lucky day.

Sheridan is hosting its next Repair Café where you can get free help fixing your broken items, and more importantly, learn from expert volunteer “fixers” about how to repair them yourself!

At the Repair Café, you can get help to fix small appliances, electronics, computers, clothes and more.

Our Fixer Katherine (right) is working with Jaspreet to put back two missing buttons to his shirt.

Repair Café Fixer Paul (middle) is working with the two visitors to trouble shoot the problem of the blender.

Alvin is one of our Fixers who specializes in repairing computers. In the video below, he explained his repair process at the Repair Café held in a Toronto Library last summer.

We would like to invite you to join Sheridan’s next Repair Café at the Davis Campus. The details are below:

Reminder to Repair Café visitors:

  • The fixer will work with you to repair your item. You will need to be present throughout the repair process.
  • Bring all the accessories of your item if they are available (e.g. cable, manual), which would help the diagnosis of the problem.
  • Bring a part to test if you can (e.g. a working bulb for your lamp, a CD for your CD player, a monitor for your CPU unit)
  • Anyone is welcome to visit the Repair Café with or without a broken item. Our fixers can answer your question and provide advice on how to repair and maintain your item.

If you have any questions, please contact Wai Chu Cheng, Sustainability Coordinator, at

We are looking for more volunteer fixers to join us. If you are interested, please feel free to get in touch.
