FixIt Clinic at the Tarea Hall Pittman Branch

Saturday | October 06, 2018 | 1:00 pm — 4:00 pm

Tarea Hall Pittman Berkeley Public Library, South Branch | 1901 Russell Street, Berkeley, CA 94703

Celebrating repair by conveying basic troubleshooting skills, Fixit Clinics are do-it-together hands-on fix-n-learn community-based exploration and discovery workshops staffed by volunteer Fixit Coaches who generously share their time, tools and expertise to consult with you on the disassembly, troubleshooting, and repair of items.

So bring your broken, non-functioning things — electronic gadgets, appliances, computers, toys, sewing machines, bicycles, fabric items, etc.– for assessment, disassembly, and possible repair. Fixit Coaches (and helpful neighbors) will be available for consultation on broken items: we’ll provide workspace, specialty tools, and guidance to help you disassemble and troubleshoot your item. Whether you fix it or not, you’ll learn more about how it was manufactured and how it worked, ready to share your new-found confidence and insight with your friends, neighbors, and the community at large. (Hopefully you’ll be inspired to become a Fixit Coach yourself.)

 

  • Participants — it’s helpful to know what you’re bringing.  Let us know here
  • First-time Fixit Coaches — you’re always welcome. Sign up here.
