Bring something tasty and enjoy a social evening with the Farset Labs community on the 21st of December.
TL;DR: After going through due process, the desk usage policy has been updated to: explicitly state that un-rented desks should be cleared after use; that members have the right to move equipment left on un-rented desks to communal storage areas; which desks are currently rented/hot-desk/communal; and implementing standard COSHH practices.

EDIT: Schedule released below We’ve been quietly toiling away in the background to bring the movers, shakers and taste makers of the UK Maker Community (and beyond!) to Belfast for a one day mini-conference, set up to tear down some misconceptions about the community and to address some of the unique challenges faced in our […]
