News from the Etsy Labs: 3/9 Craft Night handmade and vintage goods

Have plans on Monday night? Well, you do now! Dust off your crafty pants and come join us for our weekly Craft Night at the Etsy Labs in Brooklyn. Craft Night occurs every Monday from 4-8pm EST at 325 Gold Street, 3rd floor in Brooklyn, New York. Craft Night is a time to make things, learn new skills, and make new friends.

This week, on Monday, March 9, we’ll be whipping up some melt-and-pour soaps with Diana of SweetBuddha on Etsy and the NYC Craft Circle Meetup group. Come out and learn how to make your own skin care products with us. This project is open to people of all skill levels and all supplies will be provided. You’ll go home with your very own bar of soap.

Not in Brooklyn? Join us for a live broadcast and demo from Craft Night online in the Virtual Labs starting at 5pm EST. Click here to see what time 5pm EST is around the world (though we usually take some time to get settled and ready to go). If you are attending Craft Night virtually this week and would like to craft along with us, you’ll need a few supplies:

  • Melt and pour soap base
  • A crock pot, double boiler, or microwave
  • Herbs for color and scent (such as lavender, mint, and rosemary)
  • Essential oils and/or fragrance
  • Colorant
  • Soap molds
  • Freezer paper

Or, just be ready to take some notes and see if this is a project you’d like to try out later on.


Upcoming Craft Nights:

3/16: Macrame with Dari

3/23: Glass Etching with Danielle

3/30: Open Craft Night
