Open Workshop London - Spring 2018

Sorry for the super late notice about this on this forum:

OWL Spring 2018

Monday, 29th January 2018 at 19:00

For our first OWL of 2018 will be visiting South London Makerspace in Herne Hill, it’s a community run Makerspace in South London.

We will be working on a BYO scheme, so if everyone brings their favourite snacks and drinks with enough to share we can make up a table of nibbles for everyone. So bring your own and a bit to share.

As usual we’ll meet at 19:00 for 19:30 with a tour followed by the usual updates from spaces and a talking topic, please feel free to email me suggestions.


What is OWL?

Open Workshop London, OWL is a meet-up for trustees/directors, staff that are setting up or running spaces, and those involved in the wider community, although based in London, we move around to different venues each quarter, folks from outside London are welcome and encouraged to join us.

The event doesn’t specifically exclude members of spaces but it is focused more at those involved in the organisation of spaces.

Open workshop is a term coined by Liz Corbin ( broadly encapulating:

  • Makerspaces
  • Hackspaces (Foundation) / Hackerspaces
  • Fablabs
  • Mensheds
  • Bike repair
  • Arts/sculpture/print making spaces

I’m hoping to be able to attend, it will be good to catch up with everyone and see the space for the first time!
