We are also running a series of repair workshops called Fixing Fridays. The free workshops are running monthly from October to March at Dalston CLR James Library. Booking is required, and it is popular, most places are now taken!
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, workshops for women and young people, school workshops, clothing repair workshops and an annual festival of fixing, The BIG Fix. We have also started developing a map of places to get things fixed in Hackney
