Hello Raw Spacers,

Well, February flew by and we’re now in March. Not quite sure how that happened!

This month, we’ve got the wonderful Carlos offering Ecuadorian chocolate tasting sessions from our very own meeting room (with a discount for members) and Gareth has arranged a terrarium workshop a few doors down on Gloucester Road (see below for more details).

We’re keen to bring more activities into our space and make the most of our meeting room. If you know anyone that will be interested in hosting an event or workshop please do ask them to get in touch.

As always, we’d love to hear any feedback or ideas you have about making our community stronger and being one of the best co-working spaces in Bristol! Pop a message on our noticeboard or speak to Emma to share your ideas.

We hope you have a great rest of the month and hope to see you at an event or two in the next few weeks.

Best wishes,

Your Raw Space Team ☺️


Space News

  • We’ve decided to turn the front office into more space for hot desks and permanent desks as our community keeps growing. It’s going to be spruced up with some paint, new furniture and lots of greenery to make it a calm, bright and green space to work. Keep your eyes peeled over the next couple of weeks and do go try it out! 🌿
  • We’ve split out our bins around the space into recycling, glass, compost and general waste to make sure we’re doing our part for the environment. Please note we have one compost bin in the kitchen next to the microwave, and we request that all food waste goes in that one. 🗑
  • Myles from Bishopston Bagels is still coming every Tuesday with his freshly home-made delights. He’s in the meeting room from midday. 🥯

Terrarium Workshop 🪴

You’ll learn everything you need to know about terrariums. From the history of how they came about, to the science of how these tiny eco-systems thrive. At the end of the evening, you’ll get to take home your freshly planted garden-under-glass and watch it grow.

£60pp or £54 pp if we have 10 or more people sign up.
