The Classroom is table-less. This is a pledge drive for tables which will make the space usable for members who are looking for working space or running classes, events and other things.
The tables will match the sturdy tables in the Studio. These have lasted years and can accommodate 2 people, side by side, with enough space for laptops and kit; for example when Arduino programming.
Why is this not being brought out of central funds?
The trustees are vetting all spends during the current financial issues, and this is something they can't priortise yet.
Why not just buy some Ikea (or insert cheaper table brand here) tables?
The ones in the classroom will need to be able to support larger weights, have proper strong metal legs and enough space for two people side by side. The studio tables were used to design the space in the classroom.
What will be run in the space once tables are purchased?
The classroom will have a projector and will be able to run events such as workshops and classes, members can use it as another working space, members meetings will take place there and things like LAN parties may also work better there.
