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 under guidance. Registration by e-Mail.
  • Fetzen&Flicken workshops in October: Registration by e-Mail. For our workshops we are happy about a donation of 15 €.

Saturday, October 16, 12 a.m. – 6 p.m.: UPCYLING WITH LACE SHREDS
With tailor & diploma clothing designer Magnus Werner
Scraps of fabric are joined with quilting stitches, creating a new openwork textile surface. This can be used to replace textile areas in garments or to extend and thus enhance them at hems.

Thursday, October 28, 6 – 8 p.m. and Saturday, October 30, 2 – 6 p.m.: CUTTING CONSTRUCTION AND UPCYCLING
With fashion designer Thimm Hoth
Fashion designer Thimm Hoth will give you an introduction to pattern making and you will construct your first pants pattern with your own measurements. You will also learn how to use these skills in upcycling.

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.
