We’re throwing a special NYE Craft Night at NYC Resistor!

A large drunk polar bear with a kabuki face painted on his stomach dances in the foreground while his friends, a llama, a panda, and a woman look on in amazement.

All usual Craft Night shenanigans welcome, whether that’s knitting/soldering/whatever projecting you want. We’ll be starting at 8pm and going til…whenever.

From left to right, a polar bear, a penguin, a panda bear, and a grizzly bear are dancing back and forth, flapping their hands near their face. The polar bear is wearing an apron and blue scarf. The grizzly bear is wearing a leather jacket, cross neckless and goggles

Bring your projects, bring your friends, most importantly – bring yourself.

Want to get certified to use our laser cutter? Of course you do! Our next laser cutting class is on Oct 14.

In this three hour class, we’ll walk through all the steps from idea to pressing the “go” button on the laser. We’ll cover safety, basic file preparation, and learn how to do a burninate test to find out if a material is laserable. After the three hours, you’ll have made a plaque for your door, a keychain, a simple box or something slightly ambitious. (There is lab time for laser cutting, questions and answers, and working with Inkscape, Illustrator, Corel Draw, etc.)
