Textile Workshop at HdM

We have an external textile workshop at Haus der Materialisierung (HdM) to repair the costumes there. Since we only use the workshop for this 3 times a week, it can be used for other purposes:


Open repair and upcycling workshop

In our open workshop Fetzen&Flicken, all Berliners can repair or change their own clothes with advice and guidance on how to do it. Our Fetzen&Flicken workshops deepen repair craftsmanship, care tricks to enhance clothing and upcycling methods.

The material store, to which users:inside are welcome to contribute, contains fabrics as well as other things, such as foams, ribbons or skins.

  • Open repair and alteration workshop: Every Tuesday & Wednesday from 3 – 7 p.m. for own repairs or modifications under guidance. We are happy about a donation of about 4 € per hour.
  • Special Fetzen&Flicken repair and upcycling workshops: Registration by e-Mail. For our workshops we are happy about a donation of 10-25 € per day.

Our Fetzen&Flicken repair and upcycling workshops are taking a break in spring 2024. However, our open repair and alteration workshop welcomes everyone to drop by without prior registration.

The project Fetzen&Flicken is funded within the framework of the Berlin Energy and Climate Protection Program 2030 by the Berlin Senate Department for Environment, Transport and Climate Protection and by Koop5.



Independent use for own projects:

We provide space and machines for costume designers to work independently and professionally. Before using the space, users receive technical instruction on the appropriate machines. This instruction is confirmed with a certificate, so that from then on the machines can be rented. Registration by e-Mail.

The project stock of costumes und textile workshop for costume designers is funded by Berlin’s Senate Department for Culture and Europe.
