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, February 9th, we’ll be creating needle felted hearts in time for Valentine’s Day with the wonderful Nguyen Le of KnitKnit, who will demonstrate the skill. You can use your felted hearts as necklace pendants, pins, or as a fuzzy Valentine! We will also pull out all of our felting needles, wool, and ribbon. This project is open to people with all levels of needle felting experience, though adult supervision for children is suggested, as the needles are very sharp! If you have felting needles or particular type of wool you’d like to use, please bring that along too. We will be providing supplies as well.
Not in Brooklyn? Join us for a live broadcast and demo from Craft Night online in the Virtual Labs. Click here to see what time 4pm 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:
- Felting needles
- Foam cushion to felt upon
- Ribbon or pinback (or necklace or pin)
Or, just be ready to take some notes and see if this is a project you’d like to try out later on.
