Our next event will be at Homerton Library on 19th November and will feature electrical and electronic fixing, clothing repair and upcycling with Barley Massey from Fabrications and the Clapton Knitters!
Have a look at our new map of places to get things fixed in Hackney. If you know somewhere to add to the map let us know!
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 two years ago. Our events always include a Restart Parties 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 22 events including restart parties, workshops for women and young people, clothing repair workshops and two Big Fix festivals of fixing:
We have also started developing a map of places to get things fixed in Hackney
