UQ’s Repair Café aims to fix items that would otherwise go to landfill, and teach UQ students and staff skills to repair their own clothes and broken items, all while enjoying a cuppa and chat.

Our Clothing Repair Cafe Event is for clothing repairs only. Bring along a worn, torn, stained, moth eaten or damaged item of clothing and we will do our best to mend it for free.

Or if you have nothing to repair, you're are welcome to help others mend, learn some new skills, or just enjoy a cuppa.
