Whether you’re feeling like transforming your summer T-shirts into something new for the emerging autumn season, or you have an itch to learn how to save the taste of summer in a jar, we cordially invite you to two hands-on workshops in Brooklyn, New York hosted by your pals from the Etsy Labs.
Don’t forget, tomorrow evening, Friday, September 24, we’ll be hosting a special Craft Night with Mummy Sam.
Please note: There will be no Monday Craft Nights at the Etsy Labs until Monday, October 18, while we move the Labs into a new space in the same building. In the meantime, we hope you’ll join us for other special events, like the Eatsy Food Labs, detailed below.
Threadless Book Launch + Etsy Craft Party
Join the Etsy Labs and our pals from Threadless for the launch of the Threadless Book at the fabulous Powerhouse Arena in Brooklyn, NY. Threadless Founder Jake Nickell, plus a handful of awesome featured Threadless artists, will be on hand signing copies and causing as much trouble as possible.
We’ll be taking the Etsy Labs Craft Night show a little bit down the road for an afternoon of making hands-on recycled T-shirt projects. Try your hand at reconstructing and repurposing T-shirts into necklaces, skirts, tote bags, and more!
The fun starts at 3 p.m., so don’t miss it! If you’re already planning to check out the DUMBO Arts Festival, pop in and say hello!
Eatsy Food Labs: Making Jam
We’re pleased to announce the Eatsy Food Labs, a series of hands-on workshops centered around making food!
To kick off the first Eatsy Food Labs on Monday, September 27, there’s nothing more appropriate than embracing the season and sharing our love of local, fresh produce with the Etsy community. As summer winds down and autumn sets in now is the time to think about keeping the tastes of summer on hand for the months ahead. Jamming and pickling, preserving in general, is a savvy practice. We created three free first-come, first-served labs to demonstrate the basic (and yummy) how-to’s. Each session is limited to 20, so sign up fast, and come ready to jam.
The first Eatsy Food Lab will be a limited-seat tutorial on jamming and preserving. An eco-friendly, cost-friendly and creatively delicious session that will demonstrate the basics of jamming and preserving. As the last summer fruit gets picked from the trees and brush, we’ll share two jam recipes and demonstrate the basic how-to’s of preserving with you. The following two sessions will feature pickling workshops, one with Eatsy cooks, Caroline Glover and Emily Davis (10/4), and one with Laena McCarthy of Anarchy in a Jar (10/21).
Where: 55 Washington Street, Suite 512 in Brooklyn, New York, 11201
When: Monday, September 27 from 4-8 p.m. ET
Sign-up here. Capacity is limited to the first 20 people to sign-up. Please RSVP accurately and thoughtfully.
