The City of Santa Monica will host a Repair Café at 1450 Ocean on Saturday, Dec. 13, from 11 am to 3 pm to learn how to fix common household items. Experienced volunteers, known as “Fixers” will be there to offer their expertise.
Hosted by the Resource Recovery & Recycling Division, the Repair Café will focus on repair and reuse as part of the city’s Zero Waste Strategic Plan.
Residents throw away an incredible amount of stuff everyday – but imagine extending the life of your items at little to no cost! Saving used items from landfills is key to reducing our waste.
Bring torn clothes, books, broken furniture, electrical appliances, bicycles, computers, and toys. The Repair Café Fixers are experienced electricians, seamstresses, carpenters, and more. They will offer instruction, tools and materials to fix what you need repaired.
This event brings together 1450 Ocean’s Free Craft Lounge, where all are invited to work on craft projects, and our biannual Repair Cafe, which brings together community experts with those seeking to learn how to repair common household items.
