Month: July 2018

"MakerNoise Talk: We Don’t Need Another Hero"

At the start of the month I was over at Edge Hill University along with a bunch of others from the DoES Liverpool community (including some of the conference organisers!) and a host of others interested in making and education, for the MakerNoise conference.

I gave a talk about maker culture and how it’s important to pay attention to that, as well as the shiny tools, when setting up a makerspace.  You can read my slides and notes below…

"Week 371 – Making Our Own Bioplastic"

Each week we’ll endeavour to publish some details of the interesting things that members of DoES Liverpool have been up to over the past seven days. You can find out a bit more about them in our introductory post.

And remember, if you’re involved with DoES Liverpool at all, let us know what you get up to so we can include it here!

The Big Move

Did you hear, we’ve moved to The Tapestry, just off London Road. We’re open for business, but while we’re settling in we’re including a brief update on how things are going each week.

We now have air-conditioning (and heating, but that’s less important at the moment 🙂 in Room 29 and the events space! We’ve also set up the desks in Room 29 and people have started moving in to work from there. We’re still working on the sound-proofing and flooring, but as that’s taking a bit longer than expected, we figured we should move in and start using it properly anyway!

If you want to help out, check the DoES Move The Tapestry and DoES Move – Settling In labels on the Somebody Should issue list, or get in touch.

The Big Move

Did you hear, we’ve moved to The Tapestry, just off London Road. We’re open for business, but while we’re settling in we’re including a brief update on how things are going each week.

Not a lot to report this week, as everyone was busy getting ready for Liverpool MakeFest.  However, as we were so busy with events we cleared out Room 29 and got some desks set up in time for the bioplastics workshop.  It’s not the finished set up, but does bring that room into more use.

If you want to help out, check the DoES Move The Tapestry and DoES Move – Settling In labels on the Somebody Should issue list, or get in touch.
