Davis Makerspace Repair Cafe @ Davis Makerspace
DAVIS, CA – June 25th 2017 – The Davis Makerspace presents a repair cafe at its space in the Tim Spencer Alley, see: www.davismakerspace.org/about/location, on Sunday June 25th from 11am to 8pm. A repair cafe is where people get together to help each other repair or improve an item which is not functioning. Our volunteers will provide help, while you research (lmgtfy, ifixit, youtube), and repair your item, with available tools and parts. The DMS has a selection of power and traditional hand tools, electronics tools, 3d printers, and a few other things. Repairing is a sustainable and conscious act that provides the benefits of education, environmental stewardship, and self reliance. Repairing things with others can be fun. Should you wish to participate at this event, or are a Maker in need of a shop please contact rob@omsoft.com Here is some great feedback from our last event: “Thank you SOOOO much for helping me with my vacuum repair. I am so happy that it was figured out. I ordered this part. Best best of luck to you all, it’s a great thing you are doing! And hoping your week goes really well!” This is free and open to the public, but donations are accepted in support of Davis Makerspace. Have questions about the event? Post them on our Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/davismakerspace/.
