We’d like to invite you all to our first meeting, to be held at the end of November.
We’re hoping to cover the following topics:
- What is a maker space?
- What other maker spaces exist locally and worldwide?
- What are we hoping to achieve?
- Who are we? (introductions all round!)
- What is each of us interested in making?
- What skills can each of us bring to this project?
- What are our next steps to achieving our goals?
Notes will be taken and posted on the website, for the benefit of those who can’t make it to the meeting itself.
