What is Hackney Fixers? Hackney Fixers is aiming to bring community repair to Hackney and is organised by James Diamond, Friederike Hanisch and Dave Lukes from Sustainable Hackney and Hackney Friends of the Earth. Inspired by the Restart Project we ran our first Restart Party in Hackney two years ago. We have since run 12 Restart Parties plus workshops for women and young people. The Big Fix is our first festival of fixing where we are getting as much fixing and re-making activity into one space as we can!

Hackney Fixers proudly presents THE BIG FIX Hackney’s first festival of fixing. We’re aiming to get as much fixing activity into one space as possible. Learn and share skills on a journey to rediscover our ability to fix and reuse things. Learn about clothing repair, chair repair, bike repair, electrical and electronic repair and more. Discover mouldable glue, make moth deterrents, make a wallet or bag from waste, help us map Hackney’s fixing places! See hackneyfixers.org.uk for more details.
