A new home for NYC’s crafting community
It?s safe to say, for a lot of us, ?making? things typically involves calling ahead for a table for two. But there can also be that part of us--the part that stalks Pinterest and has dreamed of having a Manhattan with Martha--that longs to actually make things (like with our hands).
If that?s the case, we bring you Brooklyn Craft Company, a choose-your-own-adventure in creativity that just might bring out the fantasy Etsy-er in us all.
Founded by Brett Bara (an expert in the DIY biz), the idea first materialized last fall as Brooklyn Craft Camp, a one-day event. But now Bara has expanded the concept into a permanent studio in Greenpoint.
Here, she offers a fun space for grown-ups to get their superglue on. Past classes have cost between $65 and $85 (including materials) and featured projects like crocheting necklaces and bracelets with jewelry designer Andrea Bocchio and etching glass barware with wedding designer Michelle Edgemont.
New classes should be announced soon, so follow the company on Facebook to stay in the loop and let those rezzie-making skills really shine.
