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!

Sarah Goldschadt, author of Pom-Poms!: 25 Awesomely Fluffy Projects, was there showing attendees how to make flower pom pins. I made two and plan to wear them all the time!

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.

  • sewamysew

    Looks like so much fun. I’m in love with those terrariums!!

  • Ahh my jealousy for you New Yorkers continues, I want to go to this SO bad. I’m subscribed to their mailing list (even though I live clear across the country, haha) and I’m reminded of that fact every time I see updates about it. Those box lunches sound amazing though (espresso macarons? yum!) and those terarrium’s are absolutely gorgeous, my goodness.

    Also, I have no idea why this comment starting writing in a different font but whatever. haha sorry about that

    • Oh just kidding, and of course it doesn’t get published that way. haha, I promise it was in a different font!! I’m not just losing my mind, I swear. 🙂
