Fixit Clinic, based in the San Francisco Bay Area but now offering repair world-wide, provides guided disassembly to help people learn to fix their broken stuff.
Bring your broken stuff to a clinic. Our Fixit Coaches will help you to evaluate the problem, lend you tools to disassemble it, and teach you how to use them. If you fix it, great! If you don't, well you probably learned something new about how it was supposed to work.
Celebrating repair by conveying basic troubleshooting skills: Fixit Clinics are do-it-together hands-on STEM-oriented fix-n-learn community-based exploration and discovery workshops staffed by volunteer Fixit Coaches who generously share their time, tools and (modest) expertise to consult with you on the disassembly, troubleshooting, and repair of your item.
So bring your broken, non-functioning things -- electronics, appliances, computers, toys, sewing machines, bicycles, fabric items, etc.-- for assessment, disassembly, and possible repair. We'll provide workspace, specialty tools, and guidance to help you disassemble and troubleshoot your item. Whether you fix it or not, you'll learn more about how it was manufactured and how it worked, ready to share your new-found confidence and insight with your friends, neighbors, and the community at large.
