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.

Are you a musician? Do you own an electric guitar? Whether a long-time guitarist or newcomer, join our instructor to learn how to identify and repair common issues with electric guitars. Empower and equip yourself with the techniques to make sure you’re hitting all the right notes!
