Repair Revolution – Arrowtown Repair Cafe

November 11, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

wastebusters repair revolution events

Wastebusters’ Repair Revolution is back for Spring 2023 and we are excited to bring our second event to Arrowtown on Saturday 11th November!

Do you love stuff and hate waste?  Do you want to renew, revive, and repair your broken things to give them a new lease on life and keep them out of landfill? Are you looking to share or learn new skills?

Join Sustainable Queenstown and Wastebusters for this fun, FREE, feel good event!

Would you like to help repair? Or help out on the day?

We’re looking for volunteer fixers of all kinds to join us. Whatever your super fixing power is (bikes, furniture, electronics, clothes, anything!), if you love repairing things and helping others learn, we would love to have you on board. If you have an idea of a short workshop to offer, let us know!

We also need some event crew legends to help on the day!

Please sign up here to volunteer.

What can you bring along?

As we gather volunteer fixers we will be able to specify what items would be best to bring, but generally, anything that’s broken and you can manage to carry on your own is welcome! They will do their best to help you fix it and wherever possible, get you involved so you can do it yourself the next time around.

Think clothing, small furniture, crockery, bicycles, toys and some electrical appliances. We will update this event as we get closer to the day and profile some of our volunteers and their fabulous fixing skills.

Resourceful Communities is created by Wastebusters. Sustainable Queenstown is proud to partner with Wastebusters to deliver Resourceful Communities in the Whakatipu.

This event is proudly supported by Queenstown Lakes District Council Zero Waste District Programme.
