Revive the repair culture in Singapore and salvage your (seemingly) broken products. Not sure how you can fix them? Visit the Repair Kopitiam to get some help on mending malfunctioned household items, such as irons, damaged radios, faultu fans, wobbly chairs and furniture, torn clothes, and more – for free.
These sessions take place every last Sunday of the month at public venues, such as void decks and community centres. Visit their Facebook page to find out if there will be one near you soon.
