Bring in your broken phone, laptop or household appliance for a one-to-one consultations with the expert repair technicians from REMAKE and The Restart Project.

Book a slot to attempt a repair of any small electrical and electronics you have at home - laptops, headphones, portable radios, lamps, kettles, toasters, printers and more! At the event you will learn how to find faults, take apart and safely repair your own broken device with support from the Restart Project's experienced coaches and Fernando from REMAKE. With a bit of help from the experts, you will become empowered to fix your own device, while learning the basics of repair and the importance of the Right to Repair. Come ready to learn!

To take part in the session you will need to bring:

1. A small electronic or electrical product in need of repair. Back up any data beforehand!
2. The product's power supply and any accessory or replacement part which might be linked to the problem.

The Restart Project is a London-based charity fixing our relationship with electronics. By encouraging people to use their electronics longer and collecting and sharing data from community repair initiatives globally on barriers to repair, Restart pushes for legislation for the Right to repair in the UK and across Europe. The Restart Project is a founding member of the European Right to Repair Campaign, a coalition pushing for legislation requiring manufacturers of all electrical and electronic products to design for repairability, while providing access to all independent repairers and the general public to repair manuals, affordable spare parts and long-term software and security updates.

REMAKE is a free community-based repair project that holds Repair Parties at universities around the world with a fun, collaborative spirit. We thrive on skill-sharing and collaborative learning to fix technology and our relationship with it. Our three-pronged missions combines teaching about repair, community building and policy lobbying to address e-waste from a grassroots approach. Fernando, now a UCL STEaPP graduate, is the founder and chief technician of REMAKE Repair Parties. His interest for repair, which started at youth, combined with his passion for public policy and sustainability in his undergraduate days, leading to the birth of REMAKE in Hong Kong in 2018. Ever since, he has been training new technicians and spreading the word on the importance of repair. 


Important: our COVID-19 policy for Repair Week

All event participants coming to the Institute of Making will need to show proof of a negative lateral flow test taken within 48 hours of the event. You can either show your test result on your NHS app, or show text message confirmation of a negative test result.

Face coverings

At our in-person events, all participants are required to wear a face covering. If you are unable to wear a face covering, please book our online events instead.

COVID symptoms

If you experience any COVID-19 symptoms, including a temperature, please cancel your event booking through Eventbrite and stay at home. We know it can be disappointing to miss an event, but it is important to keep everyone safe.
