It’s one of the city’s leading meet-ups for makers.
And Benchspace is inviting creative folk from all walks of life to join them for free at this month’s BenchTalk event as part of Design Week.
Held at the Benchspace base on Center Park Road, the evening on Thursday, November 17th is an opportunity for makers to meet, socialise, network, ask questions, share challenges and show off what they are working on.
