Sep 30, 2010

by Julie Schneider handmade and vintage goods

This week we are pleased to announce bi-coastal hands-on events! Join the Etsy Labs in both Brooklyn and San Francisco (and online!) for free creativity to stir up your creativity. So, read on for twice the handmade fun this week…




Canning in Brooklyn, NY:

We’re pleased to announce the second Eatsy Food Labs, a series of hands-on workshops centered around making food! Last week we had a ball concocting plum jam and canning tomatoes. (Check out the photos here.)

To continue the Eatsy Food Labs series on Monday, October 4, our in-house Eatsy cooks, Caroline Glover and Emily Davis, will demonstrate how to pickle and save the last tastes of summer for the cooler months ahead. Each session is limited to 20, so sign up fast, and come ready to pickle.



Where: 55 Washington Street, Suite 512 in Brooklyn, New York, 11201
When: Monday, October 4 from 5-7:30 p.m. ET
Sign-up here. Capacity is limited to the first 20 people to sign-up. Please RSVP accurately and thoughtfully… there will be a waiting list of other eager picklers.

Upcoming Events in Brooklyn:
10/6: Community Cooking Club at Etsy Labs
10/18: Make a zombie with Diana Schoenbrun
10/19: Church of Craft meeting (5-8 p.m. ET)
10/21: Eatsy Food Lab with Anarchy in a Jar


Crafting in San Francisco, CA:

Craft Bar With Etsy Labs at the Museum of Craft and Folk Art in San Francisco

Join us as we celebrate the first anniversary (wowee!) of Craft Bar with Etsy Labs. Student Night returns this month, and everyone can enjoy prizes, music, and refreshments from Tropiseuno. Resident crafters will instruct the making of cozy sock skeletons, pumpkin plushies from recycled sweaters, and printmaking using traditional Mexican pictograph designs. Visiting artists Meighan O’Toole, author of the blog My Love For You, will be making god’s eyes and Katy Kristin will show you how to sew cuddly plushies, like this black cat. For those who prefer a less-structured crafting experience, perfect your knitting and crocheting skills in our free-form Stitch and Bitch area. Drinks kindly provided by Trumer Pils. $5 admission to the gallery includes materials and instruction for all crafts, and students are free.

When: Thursday, October 7 from 6 to 9 p.m. PT at MOCFA. Online demo at 3 p.m. PT in the Virtual Labs.
Where: Museum of Craft and Folk Art at 51 Yerba Buena Lane, San Francisco, CA
