Good morning you lovely spacehackers!

For those of you following our progress on Discord, it's been a bloody miracle so far. This is the space we were given last Saturday morning:

Then by Monday evening:

And finally how things looked at the end of Wednesday night:

We're basically burnt out by this point, and there's _still lots of work left to do_ to set things up and figure out what to put on show for the general public at London Craft Week (LCW) on Friday & Saturday.


If you're familiar with _any area_ of the Hackspace and can spare some time from this afternoon, or on Friday during the day, we would love it if you could donate some time setting up displays & demonstrations. Because inevitably we'll still be faffing about trying to get things to work on Friday while LCW workshops are happening.

If you have your own projects you've built at the Hackspace (or not; no one will ever know) and would like to show to / talk about them with any visitors on either or both days, _please_ just bring them! Or just bring yourself and chat with people.

We'd appreciate a heads-up on Discord, here, or on IRC but really there's no need to seek permission first. Don't ask, just do. :)


A few more reasons to come along: concurrently with the LCW workshops & talks, there will be a craft market at the back of the EX2 warehouse, featuring handcrafted ceramics, homewares, furniture, fashion, handmade books, prints and more from Park Royal’s designers and makers.

On Saturday we will also have the inaugural Standard Market happening outside. There will be food stalls, drinks, flowers & plants, decor, artisan craft, and more!

Finally at 18:00 on both days until late, we're having an afterparty with drinks and live music.

Love you all,
/Liyang on behalf of the LHS trustees, but not proofread by the rest. This mess of an announcement is all my fault.
