I was so excited to see what I think might be the first ever crafty festival/camp in Brooklyn. Brooklyn Craft Camp is an all day affair being hosted by Brett Bara. Brett Bara is author of the popular craft and lifestyle blog Manhattan Craft Room and a regular contributor for Design Sponge.
From 10 am to 7 pm you will be crafting, snacking, mingling and cocktailing. Enjoy tasty donuts from Peter Pan Bakery in Greenpoint to get you started. Then choose from a variety of classes: Beginner Knitting, Knit a Chunky Cowl, Crepe Paper Flowers, DIY Nail Art Bar, Beginner's Crochet, Make a Terrarium, Twisted Crochet Headband, Learn to Embroider, Make a Painted Wooden Bead Necklace and Printmaking. WOW! What a line up!
Lunch is being sponsored by Purl Soho as well as a Pom Pom Station. How fun is that!
Keynote speaker will be Jay McCarroll, remember him from Project Runway Season 1, the winner? Not only is he a fab designer, he is a fantastic fabric designer. I personally have some of his Wonderland fabrics which are so dang cute!
And every attendee walks away with a free copy of Craft a Day by Sarah Goldschadt. Sarah will be having an all day Instant Gratification Station teaching super fast crafts. So if you have time in between some of your work shops you can stop by her booth.
Finish your day with cocktails sponsored by West Elm.
