Hackney Fixers - Welcome!

"The rise of the repair movement is an antidote to dangerous overconsumption" Tess Riley of Huff Post covering our recent event in Hackney Wick.

For our next event will be returning to Stamford Hill Library on Sunday 24th March from 1-4pm.  Bring your tired toasters, poorly printers and lazy laptops for a bit of TLC.   Our guests @Worn Well will also be helping you put some love into your jaded jeans and tatty trousers at their clothing repair workshop.

After that we're excited to be part of the first Zero Waste Hackney event to be held in Clissold Park on 8th June.

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 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.
