Week 572 – Swifts, Letterpress, Hacking the Space

23rd May 2022

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!

Hack the Space Evening

Following the success of our Hack the Space afternoon, we’re having a Hack the Space Evening this Wednesday from 6pm – 9pm. Come down if you’d like to to help make the place to make the space look and work better for all of us, Link here to find out more. Snoof’s wheelchair should be here again, so another chance to see how easy it is to get round the space in it!

Friday 27 May, 7:00pm-9:00pm Maker Music Night

Got a guitar that’s gathering dust? Want to play drums but worried about disturbing people at home? Interested in meeting with people wanting to play music? 🎸🎤 At @doesliverpool on Kempston St a few of us have connected through music at the Thursday maker night and we want to open it up for others to join in. 🎼 🎶 We are having a Jam night on the last Friday of the month between 7 and 9pm to create and play music together in the event space. You don’t have to be an expert, just willing to join in and give it a go! A few of us may pop to the bar downstairs afterwards, so feel free to join us. 🎷🎻 You are encouraged to bring an instrument along, but there will be opportunities to borrow and share. Message @quirky_aj on Instagram if you have any questions about the evening.
