This months Repair Cafe

repair cafeThis months Repair Cafe will be hosted at Jackson’s Corner hosted by the Reading Bicycle Kitchen on Sunday 15th June we open at 12:00 till 16:00.

Repair Cafe is a community project and an outreach project rLab is actively involved in supporting, to find out more about Repair Cafe and its events please have a look over the links below.

Community Help

RLab was recently approached by someone who required a headpiece to communicate with their wheelchair and computer touch screens. It seems the headpiece was actually very expensive and hence quite worn.

RLab created new laser cut and printed parts which have been saved so they can be remade at any time, and in a cooler black that the user asked for :)

This is just one of the great community projects RLab help out with, check out our Repair Cafe sessions too!

RLab are hosting every alternate Repair Cafe and we are pleased to say the February Repair Cafe will be here. We’d love to have as many of you involved as possible. More details to come soon, but the event will take place on 16th Feb 12 – 5pm, so again, feel free to offer your help for half the time if that suits you better.

Repair Cafe is a community project to bring people together to repair items rather than throw them away! Electronics, computers, bikes, clothes, tools…
