Horkonpon

Repairing Workshop

HorKonpon

HorKonpon is an open workshop that centres on the repair and reuse of tools that we use in everyday life. It aims to help make the public more self­sufficient (do it yourself) and work more as a team (do it together). It therefore seeks to gather people of all ages and skills to encourage mutual learning, by sharing technical and technological knowledge.

So anyone who thinks they are capable of repairing radios, plugs, toys, zips or any other object is invited to come to this space organised by HorKonpon. Likewise, citizens are encouraged to dust off appliances and tools stored in the loft and bring them to Tabakalera in order to repair them with the help of everyone there.

To participate in HorKonpon you need to meet at least one of these two conditions (or both): have something to teach in the field of manual work o be willing to learn. At the end of the day, the initiative seeks to share as many skills and as much knowledge as possible, to be able to do carpentry work, sewing, electricity work, mechanical work, shoe repairs, etc.
