Repair Café - Drop In
Thursday, November 26th, 2020
Repair Café Whitehorse has been helping fix broken stuff with monthly drop-in events at Yukonstruct since 2014.
Price: $5 donation if not a Yukonstruct member
Broken toaster, vacuum cleaner, or other small home appliances? Bring it in and see if it is fixable using soldering irons, multimeters, and other tools. This easy introduction to electronics and small home appliance repair is a useful evening of DIY learning that you can literally take home.
We can also help you with textile repairs and simple mending of clothes.
About the team: Glenn Piwowar has been a registered Professional Engineer in the Yukon for more than 20 years and is a born-again proponent of the Maker’s 3Rs: “Repair, Re-purpose, Re-create”. Michelle Clusiau is always making things; you will frequently find her trying new projects on the laser cutter and sharing her expertise with other Yukonstruct members.
This event is open to both Yukonstruct members and the public. We ask that people who aren't members of Yukonstruct donate $5 to cover the cost of materials.
- We will ask you to wash your hands as soon as you enter the building. After you wash your hands, we encourage you not to touch your mouth or eyes while in the building.
- We encourage you to bring and wear a fabric or dust mask, to reduce the spread of anything and protect you from dust.
- Our instructors will be wearing a fabric mask.
- Please stay home if you are sick or have a fever, cough, or shortness of breath.
