About this school

Fabrications - one of Hackney's most creative studios!

Fabrications is an independent gallery, shop and workshop dedicated to contemporary textile practice and design, with a particular interest in up-cycling and eco design.

Fabrications opened in June 2000 in a refurbished derelict shop on Broadway Market in Hackney, east London. The shops founder, Barley Massey, has spent the last 16 years growing Fabrications into a buzzing hub of creativity.

In 2011 "The Imaginerium" was built - a bolt-on to the Fabrications shop that is a fully-fitted working studio with a welcoming and inspiring atmosphere that is now dedicated for classes and workshops.
