What is Hackney Fixers?

It aims to promote repair in Hackney as an alternative to growing mountains of waste and consumption.  As a joint project of Sustainable Hackney and Hackney and Tower Hamlets Friends of the Earth we were inspired by The Restart Project to run our first Restart Party in 2013.  Our events always include a Restart Party and most now also include a clothing repair workshop.

The Hackney Fixers organisers are James Diamond, Friederike Hanisch, Dave Lukes and Bridget Harvey.

What we do

Since 2013 we have run events including Restart Parties, "Rosie the Restarter" workshops for women, workshops for young people, school workshops, clothing repair workshops and an annual festival of fixing, The BIG Fix.  We also ran a series of successful repair classes, Fixing Fridays.  We are actively involved with The Restart Project and represented Hackney Fixers at FixFest, the first international festival of the repair movement.
