Hackney Fixers - Welcome!

Our planned event in September has now been cancelled.  We expect to be back in January 2021.  Sorry for the wait. 

Meanwhile we have been working on a lockdown project to bring old laptops back into use for students to access online learning.  Do you have an old laptop you don't use?  Even if it is a bit old or needs some TLC, then please get in touch on info@hackneyfixers.org.uk. We will try to get it back in use by a local student and help bridge the digital divide! 

For news of our events why not subscribe to our e-mail list?  See the link on the right of the page. 

We are looking for people to join our organising team: if you are interested in helping us with hosting events, planning, organising, funding or communications please get in touch at info@hackneyfixers.org.uk or come along and chat to us at an event.

What is Hackney Fixers?

We aim to promote electrical and electronic 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. 

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 represent Hackney Fixers at FixFest, the annual festival of the repair movement.
