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!
Liverpool Makefest – 2nd July
Liverpool Makefest is this weekend! If you’re exhibiting anything on our stand then you can bring it in now and leave it on the marked tables in the event space.
Follow @lpoolmakefest and #LivMF22 to keep up to date, and if you’re a member of the DoES Liverpool community then please get in touch with anything you want to display, or to volunteer on the day. We’re going to have 7 tables, so plenty of space to show off your stuff. DoES-related businesses MCQN, Dynamic Devices and Steam Engineers will also be in the same part of the library.
You can book now via Eventbrite for our Afterparty on the evening of 2nd July and Maker Brunch on 3rd July – an opportunity to meet up with makers from around the country and find out what everyone has been making, and a chance to do some karaoke (if you want…).
