A big thank you to all our volunteers and fixers who helped us in 2018. It was a busy year which saw our fifth anniversary celebrated with more fixing and cake in November! Our first event in 2019 will be in Manor House at the Redmond Centre on 19th January. We hope to see you then for a fixing new year!

What is Hackney Fixers?
We aim 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 electricals and electronic fixing and most now also include clothing repair. Once a year we run a festival called The BIG Fix which includes other type of repair like furniture and bikes.
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.
