Philly Fixers Guild Repair Fair #11

  • PlayArts

Philly Fixers Guild

Join the Philly Fixers Guild for their 11th Repair Fair event! The Philly Fixers Guild is an independent collective of talented volunteers from differing technical backgrounds who are committed to the idea of “repair rather than replace.” In most instances, rather than simply fix items for people, guild members work with guests to teach the troubleshooting and repair process. Ultimately, our community will benefit from less waste and improved economic conservation.
 
 Anyone is welcome to bring anything broken. Their talented Fixers will be here to help teach repair and troubleshooting. Kids who like to learn are welcome, as are (of course!) their broken toys.

Learn more about the Fixers Guild and check out guidelines for what to bring here.

RSVP on the event page!
