Opening Hours over Christmas 2015

We just wanted to drop you all a little note to wish you a very Merry Christmas, and to let you know what our plans are for the festive period.

As usual, anyone with Out of Hours access can come and use DoES Liverpool whenever the Gostins building is open. This is normal hours until Christmas Eve, when the building will be open from 7:30am - 4pm, and is then closed until Tuesday December 29th. During that time we're open our usual hours too, for anyone booked on the laser-cutters or wanting to hot-desk.

In the week between Christmas and New Year, the 29th, 30th and 31st of December, the building is open from 9am - 4pm, so those of you with Out of Hours access will be able to get in then. However, DoES will be closed to hot-deskers during this time, unless arranged previously. This means that if you want to book a laser cutter, or time in the workshop, or even just come in and hotdesk, then that is absolutely fine, but make sure you let us know first! If you just wander in on a whim, the likelihood is that you will find some very locked doors.

If you email us at hello@doesliverpool.com, then we'll make sure those doors are unlocked.

We'll be back to normal opening hours from Monday January 4th, so don't worry, we're not away for long.

Congratulations Assemble - Turner Prize Winners 2015!

Over the years, we've had lots of incredibly talented people through the doors here at DoES - designers, artists, developers, philanthropists and much more beside. However, like almost every co-working or maker space in the UK, we've never had a Turner Prize winner.

Well, now we have.

On December 7th in Glasgow, London based collective Assemble won the coveted prize for their work in Toxteth, the Granby Four Streets Project, becoming the first architecture project to ever lift the award.

Quite aside from breaking new ground in the art world, they have done the same - both literally and figuratively - in the architecture world, by pioneering a more holistic, community driven vision of local regeneration, working with local residents to ensure that the spirit of the area was not lost during the work, which has often been a criticism levelled at more traditional regeneration projects.

During their work in the city, Assemble members have worked in DoES Liverpool, making use of the workshop facilities to create various items that have gone into the project, and becoming part of the community - as does everyone who comes here.

We're delighted to have been able to provide even the tiniest help towards such a great team making history, and, more importantly, making a difference in Liverpool.
