after the jump: third ward interview (mp3)


Good morning! It’s still rainy and gloomy here in Brooklyn, so it feels like the perfect weather to curl up on the couch and listen to something on big headphones. With that in mind, I wanted to share my most recent interview from this Monday’s radio show. I’ve been a fan of Third Ward for years now and to say they play a pivotal role in the Brooklyn maker scene is a massive understatement. Third Ward lets people learn skills, use tools, rent space and pretty much is THE hub for everything artist/designer in Brooklyn. I was so honored to sit down with Third Ward co-founder Jason Goodman for After the Jump this Monday and I hope you’ll enjoy his interview as much as I did. We talked about everything from trends in classes and students to the current wave of Brooklyn designers that seem to have their hands in not just one skill but dozens. It was a great reminder for me that Brooklyn continues to be a place that fosters up and coming makers in such a big way. Thanks so much to Jason for speaking with me and thanks to all of you for listening. You can listen at the links below. xo, grace

    Does anyone know if something like this exists in Hartford, CT??? I’d love to find like-minded people but haven’t found the avenue for creative types in Hartford…

  4. Bailey S. says:

    This sounds a lot like the hackerspaces going up around the country. He says we’ll someday think of them like libraries… some of them are IN libraries!
