San Diego Fixit Clinic in Carlsbad
April 1 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm PDT
We have been all too accustomed to the throw away lifestyle. If something doesn’t work, throw it out and buy a new one. Because of this behavior our landfills are filling at a rapid rate and electronic waste has become the one of the largest pollution generators. So why not learn how to fix it?!
Bring your broken, non-functioning things: electronics, appliances, computers, toys, bicycles, clothes, etc. for assessment, disassembly, and possible repair. We’ll provide workspace, specialty tools, and guidance to help you disassemble and troubleshoot your item. Whether we fix it or not, you’ll learn more about how it was manufactured and how it worked. This is a family-friendly event: children are heartily invited!
We are partnering with the City of Carlsbad and the Carlsbad Public Library to host four SD Diego Fixit Clinics. We will be hosting our standard fixit clinic along with a pilot furniture repair workshop (more information coming soon), textile mending workshops (more information coming soon) and a series of repair demonstrations.
On Saturday, April 1st we will be at the Cole Library in Carlsbad.
