Join us at the Repair Café pop-up on Saturday, June 8th, from 12noon to 2pm, as part of Solvest’s World Environment Day at Lumel’s Studios & Lumel Glass!

Repair Café has a team of dedicated makers who believe in repairing, not replacing. We’ve been hosting monthly events at Yukonstruct helping our community fix their things since 2014.

In April, we hosted a successful gathering, with repairs ranging from a Kitchen Aid mixer to a stereo amp, and a microwave. In May, we had a mini Repair Cafe during the Indoor Community Garage Sale at the Canada Games Centre. We fixed items like a floor lamp and a German-made slide viewer. We’re grateful to our volunteers Michelle, Tanya, Doug, Fin, Jono, Rick, Nicky, and Doug for their invaluable expertise. We also appreciate the support from Emily and Megan of Zero Waste Yukon, and the Whitehorse Community Thrift Store for their funding contribution.

Have a broken household item that you want to keep out of the landfill? We meet on the last Thursday of every month from 6 pm to 9 pm at Yukonstruct. For more details, check out our Calendar of Events. We look forward to seeing you there!
