Hii! In our Brooklyn studio, we share our studio space with other creative folks looking for some community and a place to hang your tools of trade. We believe that proximity, and the natural closeness we experience in cities, cultivates organic opportunities for collaboration and brain exchange. Rn we have an amazing VR artist, founder of @luxloop, and a textile artist and designer, cofounder of the former @piece_nyc, up in our space— up until this summer we had a woodblock printmaker, @peacheeblue, and talented designer, @thealexcenter— as studio mates. It’s awesome to work alongside talented people and learn from them. We have two workspaces open this month and looking for two people that want to share and grow with us. It’s hard being a creative sometimes, and it’s awesome to come to a space everyday where you have humans. DM us if you want to swing by and check thingz out 🖤
