Making Affordable Workspace

Posted by E17 Designers

 

From Krissie at East End Trades Guild:

""We are having a Making Affordable Workspace group discussion at Lighthaus, on the 31st July 11 Argall Ave, E10 7QZ  to talk about how we might find a new way of creating mixed use developments that are as practical and affordable for makers as possible, together with Pocket Living.

 

 

 

 
The evening will start with an optional tour of our members Turning Earth from 6.45 and the meeting will begin at 7pm and finish no later than 8.30 with time for fellowship, food and drinks within the schedule. 
 
Because of the work we have been doing along with other groups such as Just Space, Waltham Forest Council is now requiring new developments in the area to include space for industry and manufacturing!
 
One such new development in the pipeline is a Pocket Living project in Leyton. Pocket Living has an interesting model of compact sized housing for single people and have clauses within their leases which stipulate that owners must live in the borough that the housing is built in.
 
As one of the more innovative housing developers we have an opportunity to develop a relationship through this meeting that could enable more affordable workspaces for our members in the future""

DROP - OFFS IMPORTANT INFORMATION<br>

E17 DESIGNERS DROP OFF BY VEHICLE please ONLY use the front gate (Gate 1) of Lloyd Park on Forest Road between 9am - 9.45am <br>

Show your Eventbrite registration at this point, either on a phone or paper ticket. Please stop on the large gravel area, to the right facing the WM Gallery. Do not drive around the island/roundabout. Please be aware there will be a lot of activity in this area and we appreciate your cooperation and patience. <br>

 

This is strictly a drop off zone so please arrange in advance for any help if you think you need it with unloading so your vehicle can move swiftly on. I will have one helper for cars and one in the marquee who will be between the two. If you do bring someone just to offload that would be great. They do NOT need an eventbrite registration if they are just dropping off (eg taxi driver etc) <br>

Either do this if you can (ecosol fireproof spray, I will have some on me as well), or just answer YES. I have already submitted our risk assessment so I too will be super aware of bags/trailing fabric etc. If you are asked by me or staff to move anything please do so to minimize risks. Please refer to links in members downloads about insurance etc. or email me, I am covered for the event. <br>

Toilets<br>

 

Your nearest toilet facilities will be portaloos beside the William Morris Gallery, there is also a quiet toilet at the top of the Gallery in the education rooms (shhhhhh) <br>

 

 

 

First Aid <br>

 

There will be First Aid trained members of staff on site. If you have a medical emergency then please find someone with a radio who will be able to call for help. <br>

Bring your own water, and please keep hydrated during the day. There will be large water points where you can refill bottles. You are welcome to bring your own food but please refrain from bringing glass and alcohol. There is food and drink available on site to purchase – Real Food Festival on Aveling Park Fields.

Pack Down & Storage<br>

 

 

The E17 Designers marquee, along with other Arts & Crafts area in the South end of the park, will close between 6 - 7pm. Small items may be stored in the WM Gallery IF you are booked for BOTH days. I have already allocated this space for you if you have booked both days. This is possible once the Gallery is closed to public (6pm). Please pack and be at the Gallery by 6.45pm. The doors are locked so ring the doorbell. Any items left must be collected the following morning between  9 - 10am. Although every care will be made to keep this area secure, belongings are left at your own risk. <br>

 

 

No vehicles are allowed back on site until the event is closed and the park is clear of public. Before this time, you may park in the vicinity of the park (see parking details above) and carry items between the marquee and your vehicle. If you have a trolley this would be useful. Please be subtle in doing so, and aware that neighbouring roads will be busy.  Once you have finished packing away and have left your area tidy, you are then free to leave or stay and enjoy the event! <br>

job advert for Waltham Forest Adult Learning Service:part time tutors in arts and crafts needed

Posted by E17 Designers

 

here is a great opportunity if you want to get in to teaching, I had a meeting with them and they are pretty keen to get new people on board: they weill even pay for a teacher training course. The teacher training courses are usually only a few hours a week for twelve weeks, so not a big commitment and you can get work as a tutor and do the course at the same time.

here is the link to the websbite with how to apply:

GDPR compliance

Posted by E17 Designers

Lots of organisations you may have heard from already, sending you opt in forms, due to new GDPR (stands for General Data Protection Regulation) regulations and guidance on how best to communicate with customers. So I spent yesterday working out what to do, so we can send info to our nearly 2000 strong email database: on the one hand, we have built up this email database over ten years, on the other, we are breaking the law if we do not alert eveyone that they need to 'opt' back in.......

 

Here is the link to the email I have sent to all our customers. If you have your own database for you own customers, feel free to use some of the text (or google 'GDPR compliance') 

Our website contact email form, our link to go on mailing list, and also our facebook link to go on mailing list, have all been updated with the relevant forms...phew!

If you are not on our customer mailing list (I usually copy and paste your member' email across to keep it up to date) feel free to subscribe through the website click through button, you will see that on every page.

P.o.P!-People of Purpose Space to hire/share in Georgian Village, Wood Street, E17

Posted by E17 Designers

PLEASE CONTACT THEM DIRECT IF YOU ARE INTERESTED/HIRING THE SPACE:

Popeastlondon@gmail.com

P.o.P!-People of Purpose

 

P.o.P! was born out of looking for somewhere to be purposeful and to make that space available to others trying out a project .

After looking at the not so affordable/inconvenient studio spaces , we found the Georgian village shops to be available& priced so you could risk trying a project.  Since October it has been running as a shop, selling workshops and making creations. It’s also used as quiet study.

We look to invite: People to sell through here &

 more members, on the lease it is named a shop but we are encouraged that as long as we are seen to be selling and have the doors open Tues-Sat 10-5

Thursday and Friday can stay open til 8pm if you had an after work audience/need to stay late .

So far the model has been split everything (rent/work)and prefer it that way ,a collective mentality. There’s a manager of the buildings but not this shop. We have to meet occasionally, but we have an email group for things like sharing the new toilet code info etc.

We’re looking for day members but it can be split between 2 of you doing half days.

So the costs and benefits:

£75 a month for a day a week

That covers :

day rent , leccy,water ,wifi, toilet cleaned and toilet roll. We got public liability so any workshop participants are legally looked after, you may want to read the small print to see if your activity requires anything further.

You can use this day to charge for your own activities.

What’s in the space to use :

oil heater , window space, hanging space and shelf space, of course we’d all make it fair so that you are represented . How the space develops is a collective experience so suggestions welcome on how we use it.

Bluetooth speaker, Also a kettle some lamps,tea cups and supplies. Bring your own taste in things, it’s meant as a base.

We have 9 chairs. 

·      11 can be seated with a desk space each against the wall. That’s comfortable but with the option to add more in the centre.

·      Fold down all tables to have a full open space.

·      There are 2 desk size tables stored underneath which  make either 2 separate tables or one large table in the centre.

Tables ,when folded down, have been designed to have a lip for tea cups to sit,so if you’re standing you have somewhere to put your drink!

Plenty of plug points.

Floor is made durable and waterproof,ready for action.

Large sink ,cold running water.

Some storage,not huge but x8 separates.

If it is for running groups, advertising and finding your people would be key rather than hoping for a drop in.

 

Popeastlondon@gmail is the contact and the Instagram&facebook .
