Participate: We like friendly people who like to think about how things work.
We are not equipped to accept visitors outside of Craft Nights. Please come to Craft Night, or email us to set up an appointment.
Come hang out with us at Craft Night every Monday and Thursday night! RSVPs for Craft Night are appreciated (but not required) via our Eventbright here. Craft Night happens almost every Thursday and Monday from 6:30pm until we get tired and go home. These are our public nights, stop by and meet people, share knowledge, and work on your projects. Don’t forget to bring a project to work on! Please check the calendar and read the front page of the blog for announcements and changes.
We also teach classes and have occasional parties where we dress up. Come by and say hi during a public event, we’d be happy to meet you and show you around. Check our EventBrite page and our Google Calendar for upcoming events. You can also join our Facebook group and read this blog to stay informed.
There’s now also a public Discord group, here’s the signup link.
Membership: Resistor is a private space in which members pay monthly dues. Membership to NYC Resistor involves some process, but step 1 is to say hi at the next Craft Night!
Friends of NYCR is a way for non-members to support NYCR. It is completely optional, and immensely appreciated. If you enjoy our public events, classes, and craft nights, consider becoming a Friend of NYCR.
Accessibility: There is a short set of stairs leading to our building’s front door (5ish steps). Resistor is located on the fourth floor. If you would like to use the elevator, please ring the buzzer and a member will bring the freight elevator down; otherwise, you will need to use the stairs.
If you’re visiting us, we ask that you abide by our code of conduct:
Welcome to NYC Resistor. We are here to learn, share, and make. We want everyone to feel comfortable asking questions, trying new things, and making mistakes. We ask that your conduct be guided by the desire to help us create an inclusive, encouraging, and diverse environment free of intimidation and harassment. We are an eighteen and over facility.
Comments, actions, or visual displays which demean, harass, or insult others are not permitted. This includes those which target a person’s race, creed, ethnicity, age, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical appearance, or ability.
NYC Resistor reserves the right to summarily eject you if you recklessly endanger others, act in violation of the code outlined above, or otherwise behave poorly.
If someone is abusive or causes you to feel uncomfortable, you can email the Code of Conduct Committee at [email protected]. You can also ask any NYC Resistor member for help.
This code of conduct is neither exhaustive, nor complete. It serves to distill our common understanding of a safe, collaborative space.
The Code of Conduct Committee is a rotating group of NYC Resistor members. We will respond to any reports within 7 days. If you have a complaint which requires a CoC Committee member to recuse themselves, you can alternatively contact a member of the current committee directly.
