This is the list of things that need to be done before we can open to the public. In some cases there's a responsible person noted and if you are thinking of things in that area or want to do some work which hasn't been planned or agreed, please talk to that person first and check that what you'd like to do fits with the communith plans.

What does it mean to be responsible for one of these areas?

The main thing here is not that someone volunteers to do all the work, but that they take responsibility for making sure stuff happens, whether that means doing it themselves or working with others. For most tasks, this means thinking what's possible, checking with the community (eg on this list or in a meeting) what's wanted, maybe getting the community to choose from some options, checking how the money looks (for things we'll buy from core funds - meaning talking to Laura/Simon/Jonny), and then making stuff happen :) . Laura/Simon/Jonny are here to support this with legal/financial help and will ensure we don't overspend and so on. We need to share the tasks we have between us so no one collapses from overwork, and there's lots of different things to do so hopefully everyone can find something they enjoy. Also note How to buy things for Makespace

  • big sort through everything we have and categorising and labelling and moving to sensible places
  • for complex kit items, write /download/print instructions and signs and so on
    • might go alongside a risk assessment in terms of signs like "wear goggles when using this"
    • but there's more, like making sure we have links to right manuals displayed next to bits of kit
    • and nice clear instructions "how to get started with 3D printing if you haven't done it before" (even if they just say: talk to Bob or Sue who know all about it)
  • getting photo wall of members names and pics and interests up so we can start to learn who we all are
  • floor in secure workshop
    • Needs tape (we have the tape) and adhesive (needs acquiring) and someone to remove old tape and do new stuff etc

    • consumables include: thread for sewing, filament for 3D printing, resistors, pens, glue and tape and paperclips and all sorts
