This event has now passed.


Our skilled technicians will guide you through the different steps of finding out why an appliance has stopped working and how to fix it, ultimately saving it from going into landfill and further contributing to the world’s worsening e-waste problem.

Up to ten participants can get hands on repairing items, whilst more can follow the sessions as audience members. We will be using video equipment to live stream the repair on our screen, so you don’t miss a thing, especially the “fiddly” bits!

If you would like to part in the hands-on repair, please email Kat Corbett at

All tools, safety equipment and items to repair will be provided.
