"Week 665 – Lithoplanes, Hearts and Flowers"

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!

Boost Membership – April Start

We’re very late this time, so let’s get boosting quickly!

If you already know what you’re doing then head over here to apply otherwise read on for more information about Boost membership.

Apply for Boost Membership

The DoES Liverpool Boost Membership was introduced to celebrate the 10th anniversary of DoES Liverpool – the amazing coworking and shared workshop space in the Fabric District of Liverpool. Boost membership gives two people the opportunity to use the space free of charge for six months either with an allocated desk or by having 24-hour access to the workshop.

As things continue to be difficult for people due to inflation, fuel prices and all the economic woes we’re dealing with at the moment we thought it would be worth pointing out that boost membership is open to anyone, even existing paying members. If 6 months free membership would help you out at the moment then feel free to apply, of course if you’re not already a paying member you are still welcome to apply.

Applications are open until 11:59pm on Sunday 17th March 2024, any applications received after this point will not be considered. We will endeavour to announce the winners as soon as possible afterwards.

We have a dedicated page with lots more information about Boost Membership so if you want to find out more just head over there and take a look!

And please share with anyone you think might benefit.

We were a bit late announcing our new Boost members, Neil and Kez – if you’ve missed our post about them then you can catch up here

Tate/Resolve Collective Exhibition

Resolve Collective, who have been working with the Tate Gallery as part of their redevelopment, and who built the awesome fitted shelves in our Fibre Arts room, are having an exhibition about their project. It’s at RIBA North (down at Mann Island). They’re having a Private View on Thursday 8 February – find out more from Adrian’s Google Group post here (it should be a good opportunity to catch up with some other friends of DoES Liverpool too – Resolve have also been working with other creative organisations around the city, including HomeBaked Anfield, Liverpool Tool Library, Kitty’s Launderette and Pagoda Arts).
