a eve samuels (she / they) began teaching with MakerSpace NYC in 2017, and is thrilled to be back with class offerings this year! eve is a queer white woodworker & designer, who grew up in the Hudson Valley, and has called Brooklyn home since 2014.

Both their small business Two Tree Studios (founded 2017), and education initiative The Level Up Project (founded 2020), are operated out of their East Williamsburg studio. Through these entities, samuels pursues slow & responsive design, translating the concept of 'sustainability' beyond material sourcing & waste management, into a larger working ethos.

samuels' eye for minimalism, strong craftsmanship and appreciation for the natural world is felt throughout their wooden furniture, vessels & sculpture. From their production practices, to centering knowledge-sharing & redistribution, samuels strives to keep their footprint light, while contributing to a more equitable future within their industry.
