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!
Liverpool MakeFest is coming up soon – it’s on Saturday 1st July when we’ll have loads of space to show off all the great things people have been making and doing at DoES Liverpool.
If you’d like to come along and help, or have something you’ve made that you’d like to display, then please add your details to the relevant Git issues or have a word with one of the DoES Liverpool organisers. Even if you’re not sure you’ll finish in time it’s useful for us to be able to know what we might need to set up.
We’re having an After Party and Maker Brunch here at DoES Liverpool too! (see calendar section below)
Things of Note
Trying out some new ideas at #PlasticPlaygroup @DoESLiverpool today. @Collabedo heat pressed some colourful bottle tops for a new jewellery range, @arthrowl improvised carrying handles for the comet, and @jackie_pease used some waste acrylic to make 60s style flowers#WeekNotes pic.twitter.com/PMVbhEaeI7

(Looks different than normal? That’s because the Twitter API we normally used has stopped working. If you’ve got any ideas for how we should put together WeekNotes in future and would like to work on them, then please get in touch)

Liverpool MakeFest 2023
If you’re a DoES Liverpool maker then see the above – we’d love you to bring along your makes. Otherwise come along and meet all the makers from around the country that you haven’t yet met yet! Great for all ages.

After Party at DoES Liverpool
Once the public have gone home, and the kit is all packed away, join us at DoES Liverpool to celebrate another successful Liverpool MakeFest!
We’ll be opening the doors to the Liverpool makerspace, so you can catch up properly with all those people whose stand you didn’t get chance to go and see and chat to during the day.doesliverpool.com/
There’ll be some snacks and drinks, but please bring a bottle to add to the festivities. I’m sure at various points there’ll be some group takeaway ordering to arrange food.
There will also be karaoke, but don’t worry if that’s not your thing, DoES Liverpool is plenty big enough for you to avoid it 😉
|Sunday 02 July, 11am – 3pm||
Maker Brunch at DoES Liverpool
So, on the Sunday (let’s hope heads aren’t too sore after the Saturday evening after-party) 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.
We’ve done it before, and it was fun, so we’re doing it again.
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… I’m sure we’ll work it out on the day. As ever, there’ll be good coffee and tea.
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.
