Jan 21, 2010

After a lengthy Craft Night hiatus we’re excited to start making all of our crafty new year’s ambitions come true. We invite you to join us for our first Craft Night of 2010, a stenciling session with Ed Roth — whether you’re in Brooklyn or anywhere in the world.

Stop by for our weekly Craft Night in our online multi-user chat room, the Virtual Labs, for a live online demo at 5 p.m. ET, or in person at the Etsy Labs in Brooklyn anytime between 4-8 p.m. at 55 Washington Street, Suite 512 in Brooklyn, New York. (Click here to see what time 5 p.m. ET is in your hometown.) Craft Night is a time to make things, sharpen your craft skills, and connect with fellow crafters.




On Monday, January 25, Ed Roth will be sharing his expert stenciling skills at our first Craft Night of the year. Please bring a t-shirt, tote bag, card, pillowcase or anything else that you would like to spruce up with a stencil.

Ed Roth (that’s him on the left) started his company, Stencil1, in Brooklyn, NY in 2004. Stencil1 designs and sells laser-cut reusable stencils inspired by stencil graffiti, with imagery ranging from urban and eclectic to nature-inspired. The company’s aesthetic lies somewhere between street art and decorative arts. 




If you are attending Craft Night virtually this week and would like to stencil along with us, you’ll need to gather the following supplies:

  • T-shirt, tote bag, or a surface to stencil upon
  • Stencil bristle brushes (flat head brush), one for each color
  • Fabric jar paints in various colors 
  • Paint dish
  • Stencils
  • Cardboard sheets or boxes to slip into shirts for flat painting surfaces
  • Fabric spray paints
  • Newspaper to control overspray
  • Iron and board to heat seal design

For further insight into Ed’s stencil process, check out the how-to video below.
