A couple of months back, when he was visiting to help us fit out the new DoES Liverpool space with a stint of floor-scrubbing, Jo Hinchliffe and I were discussing the wider maker community and reckoned it would be good if there were more opportunities for us makers to just meet up and hang out.
With Liverpool MakeFest coming up that gave us a perfect chance to host a get together.
So, on the Sunday after MakeFest (let’s hope heads aren’t too sore after the Saturday evening after-party here at DoES too) we’re going to have a Maker Brunch.
It’s nothing grand, just a chance for anyone who fancies getting together with some fellow makers. No presentations, no obligations, all deliberately low-key.
I’m not sure exactly what we’ll do for food. There are a few cafes round the corner from DoES Liverpool which do bacon butties and the like; the bakery in the nearby Lidl does a good range of pastries; there’s also been the suggestion of scones. I’m sure we’ll work it out on the day. As ever, there’ll be good coffee and tea.
We’ll open the doors at 10:30am (I’m assuming that’s early enough – if you need to check out of your hotel before that, let me know and we can work something out) and be there until at least 3pm (and probably a fair bit later).
If you’re worried that you won’t know anyone, you should come anyway, find one of these four people and say “Hi, I’ve just arrived. Can you show me round?” They’re all friendly people who’ve agreed to welcome any newcomers
