Fix-It Clinic

June 15 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free
Fathers Day Fix-It

From Austin Resource Recovery and the Texas Farmers’ Market –

Why buy Dad a new watch when you can help him fix his favorite one for free? Be thoughtful & environmental at our Fathers’ Day Fix-It Clinic!

What’s a Fix-It Clinic?

Has your favorite watch lost the time? Did your blender suddenly stop working? Is your child’s toy a little worse for the wear? Bring these items and more to the Fix-It Clinic where volunteer coaches with repair know-how will be available to teach you how to fix your item.

Fix-It Clinics are all about do-it-together hands-on disassembly, troubleshooting and repair knowledge. Fix-It Clinic attendees are expected to be active participants in trying to fix their items with guidance from our coaches. Attendees should plan to stay with their items. Dropping off of items for repair will not be permitted.

What should I bring?

Your broken stuff and a desire to learn how to fix it! However, please note that we have a limit of two items for repair per visit. If you have a replacement part that you suspect might help you fix your item, please bring it with you. At this Fix-It Clinic, you can learn how to fix almost anything! Including:

  • Jewelry
  • Accessories
  • Toys
  • Small Appliances
  • Electronics

Who can attend?

All ages are welcome, but children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

How do I sign up?

Choose up to two tickets based on the item(s) you plan to bring and when you’ll arrive. If the ticket you are looking for is sold out, though we can’t guarantee availability of our coaches, you are welcome to come to the clinic with your item and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Who do I contact about volunteering?

We are always looking for individuals with repair skills to become Fix-It Coaches! Contact us at <logistics@texasfarmersmarket.org>
