Papakura Repair Cafe
August 5, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
Papakura Innovation Event #2 focuses on recycling and repairing… On Saturday 5 August, from 10-4 in the Papakura town centre, there’ll be lots of fun and awesome things to see and learn and do.
Bike Repair with Mr T
Prestigious local bike man, Teau Aiturau (commonly known as ‘Mr. T’) will be leading a group of people helping you to repair and maintain your bike.
BYO your bike and learn how to repair it – fixing punctures, tinkering with the gears, tightening the spokes. Learn how to maintain your bike for longer life, and have a safety check to ensure you have a longer life yourself!
Upcycling with The Roots
Also on the same day: an upcycling activity, using recycled materials to make cool things. The Roots: Creative Entrepreneurs, Waikare and Shardae – the upcycling masters – will be there, teaching you how to make and decorate cool looking windmills and planters from old drink bottles. Waikare will also be giving demos of how to make outdoor seating using old tires and rope. And if you have any empty 1.5L / 2.25L soda bottles lying around, The Roots could always use a few more.
About Repair Cafe
Repair Cafe Auckland is a community-led repair workshop, where people help each other to fix broken things that would normally be thrown away. Have a go at fixing things yourself with tools and guidance from Andrew and the rest of the community. Everything from buttons on shirts to umbrellas to video game controllers and more. And if you tell Andrew what you want to fix via email (email@example.com), he will see if he can find parts to cannibalise.
