Week 593 – Standup and Materials Events

17th October 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!

Things of Note

  • Thanks to Kirsty for organising a fantastic DoES DoeS Liverpool standup event on Wednesday evening, despite the Tapestry lift woes. And thanks to FH for providing a venue at the last minute. Click here for photos

Meetings will take place on the first and third Thursday of each month .
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.

Maker Night

Our free regular evening meetup where you can find out about our space and all the making equipment in it, get a laser cutter or CNC embroidery machine induction, and work on projects from physical computing and electronics to 3d printing, routing and sewing. Just pay for maerials used.

Sunday 23 October, 2:00pm-5:00pm

Plastic Playgroup

In a world with mountains of plastic and molehills of play, let’s get our spades out and shift the balance.

Make new things from abandoned plastic with us. Plantpots, purses … pedalos?

Shred plastic. Blend it. Meld scraps together with a heat gun. Make sheets. Laser cut it. CNC it. Stitch potato bags together with soldering iron? Make fabrics with a regular iron? What have we got, what can we make? We don’t know – let’s figure it out!

Two rules:

1. No Objectives – this is an aimless and wandering session.
2. Bring Your Own Initiative – this is an active session and we’ll help you get creative.

Every two weeks on a Sunday afternoon, between 2pm and 5pm.

Facilitated by Plastic Tactics – follow on social for the latest updates, and to see what we make if you can’t be here in person:
