Thanks. We need a new approach to get members to commit to keeping the Space open to visitors.
I am going to try and be there most Wednesdays for the open evenings.
Maybe we should record an audio tour like they have in a museum?
Before I @ the life out of everyone. @nico.dejong.nzdid you say you we’re around to host tonight? As you’ve done a lot of them it would be nice if someone else could share the laid a bit.
Sorry the tag didn’t work so have only just seen this message.
I am willing to do it no worries
Yeah, fat finger typing.
I’m happy to put out the call for tonight. I’m sure there’s other things you’d rather be getting on with?
@members – it’s that time again!
We’re looking for a member (or two) to host this Wednesday – and sign up for future Open Evenings. It’s an easy way to give a little back to the Makerspace – just be there to welcome guests and show them around a bit.
We have a very good guide that gives a tried and tested way of doing it – or you can bring your own style: maybe a making activity or some kind of demo? Up to you really.
Being open and welcoming is part of our DNA, and being a host enables us to welcome in groups of guests without unduly disrupting the making activities of members in the Space.
Who’ll answer the call?
I’ll be there on an induction with Chris Naxxfish during the open eve but will arrive earlier to help clear /set up.
I can help if needed?
Hi @Matine are you happy to host tonight?
If you are so you have a project photo and/or anything about your maker interests that you’re happy to have shared on social media?
Hi @Dermot Yes I can host tonight. Ah actually I was going to post my finished drawers on discourse since lots of people saw my struggles with them, I thought I’d post the finished piece. I’ll post it up today and you can grab it from there?
I’ll also post on our Instagram if you don’t mind?
Do you have Instagram? I can then tag your user.
How was it last week?
@members Open Evening has come round once again, almost like clockwork.
So… who’ll spend and hour or two showing off our brilliant Space?
Hey, I could do tomorrow ? Is it 7.30?
Last week went well! Around 10 people
Here’s the guide, you don’t have to follow it slavishly, in particular the bins stay in the garden now…
Usually best to be there by 7 to be ready for guests at 7:30.
You’ll need someone with shutter access to be there too?
