Repair Cafe Payneham

Repair Cafe Payneham is a free monthly, open community event aiming to reduce waste in landfills, pass on valuable repairing knowledge, and create a sense of community. It’s a place where you can bring your broken items for fixing and learn how to fix them yourself – with the help of our skilled volunteer repairers.

Our sessions typically include electronic, electric, clothing, small furniture and general repairs. We post about our monthly volunteers, and repairs they will be able to help you with, closer to the event date on our main Facebook page.
Please note:

  • One item at a time – one item is permitted per person at one time. Once that item has been completed, another item may be placed in the queue
  • Last repairs at 11.30am – or earlier if we are very busy
  • No drop-off service – visitors are expected to remain with the repairer to help with the process, if possible, or learn how it is done
  • Donations – our Repair Café is a free service, but we welcome donations to help us cover the costs

We are always looking for more volunteers – repairers, event support and behind-the-scenes help. If you would like to be involved, please get in touch with Rosemary –

Repair Cafe Payneham takes place alongside One Planet Market on the 3rd Saturday of every month at Payneham Community Centre,374 Payneham Rd, Payneham SA 5070.
