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.
During Maker Day we moved a few things on from the move list. We got all the new putty in round the internal windows, so that’ll be ready to paint in a week (and half of the windows were masked up in preparation). Sean J and Mike re-jigged the CNC workshop to better contain some of the dust and noise. We also experimented a bit with the desk layout of the co-working area in the main room to use the space more efficiently.
The DoES Liverpool to-do list is stored in the issues of our Somebody Should repository on github. Head over there if there’s something you’d like to report, or if you want to help out fixing things.
