Who we are:
Tri-tryagain is a maker-crafter-artist space in Ridgewood, Queens. We are a small community of makers, artists and the like. Our lovely second floor 2500 square-foot space is equipped with woodworking and hand tools, workbenches and a useful selection of materials and supplies. We work with electronics, wood, metal, paper, found objects…  We are a lamp-creating, print-making, radio-building, picture-painting, toy-making, furniture-modifying, everything-fixing workshop. We value process as well as product.  We like reusing and recycling materials.

What we are offering:
We are hosting a free seven-week residency from June 8 – July 27. There will be a final gallery show on July 27.

Each resident gets a space in the workshop, including a bench, shelf space and access to tools.  In addition, they get, if they so wish, training in tool use, and mentorship.

Hours are 9 AM to 9 PM, there is currently not 24 hour access.
Tri-tryagain is not a live-work space.

Who we are seeking:
We are looking for makers, crafters, artists and the like.  Experience is secondary to enthusiasm. You don’t have to have a specific project in mind, but hopefully you will end up making some Thing and have it in the gallery show.  The residency is open to individuals or a collaboration of two (both collaborators must complete the application). Tri-tryagain must be the resident’s primary workspace for the period of the residency.  Applicants must be 18 or older.

Fine print:

This is an open workspace, and requires consideration of the other makers.
We don’t have a spray booth, dust collection or active ventilation. For this reason, projects that require extended use of power tools are not suitable for this residency.
A rotating selection of materials and common shop supplies are available for free. Some are subject to a fee.
At the end of the residency leftover materials and/or supplies must be removed, or upon approval, added to workshop supplies.
Consult our website for a full list of tools we have and don’t have. Feel free to bring your own tools.
We are on the second floor, no elevator is available. Unfortunately we are not wheelchair accessible.
Dogs welcome!

We see a world filled with electronic jewelry, wooden glowing totem poles, toasters that play polkas and hydrogen cars. Solar cells on top of layer cakes.
