NYC-area friends, have you heard of Brooklyn Craft Camp? Brooklyn Craft Camp is a one-day DIY event created by crafting extraordinaire Brett Bara. This past Saturday was the second Craft Camp (of many to come), and I had the best time there making fun crafts and new friends.
You guessed it, Brooklyn Craft Camp is run kind of like summer camp. Attendees select four different crafts to learn and make throughout the day.
One of my favorite DIY activities at Camp was tassel-making, taught by jewelry designer Christina Batch-Lee. These little suede tassels were really quick to make and look so chic!
We had a yummy boxed lunch prepared by local independent chef Lisa Leonard-Le.
Jessica Washick showed us how to do some awesome nail art. I was so inspired by her nails that I tried some of her techniques at home the next day!
Gönül Yetim helped me make a beautiful terrarium. I’m a bit of a challenged gardener, and she was so patient with me! In the end, I think it turned our pretty well.
Want to know when the next Brooklyn Craft Camp is announced? Be sure to join their mailing list for all the updates.
