All done by hand!

All done by hand!

In the multi-purpose workshops of the SIV foundation in Biel, the employees make a wide range of everyday objects and refurbish secondhand items – all by hand. SIX employees spent a day there helping.

Second-hand items are cleaned and made fit to be used again, ...

... the inner workings of a lock for a garden gate are assembled, ...

... or small pieces of wood bundled up for use in fire-lighting.

Garments are checked and sorted.

There is also time to take the occasional break.
