Austin Resource Recovery presents Fix-It at Home!, an interactive, online workshop series aimed at teaching Austinites repair and maintenance skills from home. Classes range from learning sewing basics and ‘patching’ up clothes, to fixing recreational equipment and household appliances. You’ll meet and learn from a local expert who will instruct you and other Austinites during the class.

Having problems with your brakes and tires? Fear no more! Our instructor will teach basic bike repairs and maintenance, with an emphasis on break and tire repair. Get equipped with skills to replace your own tire or brake pads when they get worn out.

Class size is limited. If you are unable to attend, please remove your registration. Class participants that live in the Austin-area will be given priority.
