Nottingham Hackspace

Hello from our very nice-looking hackspace!

If you've been in the space recently, you might have noticed a change in the comfy area. A nice change. A comfortable change.

Yes, the comfy area is complete! New sofas, new tables, new shelving, and a nice big red curtain dividing it from the studio!

We hope you enjoy the new comfy area, and that you help keep it as clean and neat-looking as it is now!

And the space is doing a trial run on a cleaner! Twice a month on Thursday mornings, we'll have a cleaner in to clean the studio, kitchen, bathroom, and comfy area.

Don't take this as an excuse to suddenly turn into trash monsters, though. Even though they're in twice a month, you still should clean up after yourself!

From The Ridiculous...

After you get out and vote on Thursday, why not hang out at the space and watch the results!

We'll be having an Election Party starting around 8 and continuing on until the wee hours of the morning right when the results really start getting interesting.

It doesn't matter what your politics are - bring your opinions, bring your banners, and get ready to shout at the TV!

To The Sublime!

And if the Election gets you too down, why not slap on some glitter, grab your flags, and get ready for the wonders of Eurovision!

We'll be having a Eurovision Party on Saturday, 23rd May, starting at 8.

Will the UK have another nul points adventure? What costumes will they be wearing? And how exactly will Russia and the Ukraine vote? Come see!

Wire-Wrapped Jewellery Workshop

Learn how to make wire-wrapped jewellery in this fun Saturday workshop!

Using metal wire, beads, and fixings, you'll learn how wire-wrapped jewellery works and how to make your own pendants, bracelets, and more!

The workshop is on Saturday, 30 May, from 11am to 3pm, and will cost £35.

For information on booking, please read the Google Group thread.

Photography Group!

Our next Photography Group is on Monday, 4th May, where you can show off your existing photos, talk about the best way to get better photos, and just generally geek out about cameras, from approximately 7:30 onwards! Find out more on the site!

Stitch and Bitch!

Bring your knitting, crochet, weaving, spinning, cross-stitch, embroidery, nalbinding, kumihimo, rope-making, for an evening of crafty fun in the comfy area. Next session is on Tuesday, 19 May, from 7pm. Find out more on our site!

 

Get ready for the AGM!

You should have received an email from the Trustees with the details of the next Hackspace Annual General Meeting.

Our AGM will be on 21 May at 7pm at Antenna.

We need at least 70 members to be at this meeting to have quorate - which means we can approve the budget and vote on the special resolutions.

If you can make it, please do so.

You can read the agenda now.

You can read all the information from the email. We are also looking for members to run as trustees, and a member to stand as the returning officer, which you can read about in the email.

Don't Forget!

Remember these important dates at your local hackspace!
