We are happy to announce that this year’s Brooklyn Craft Party will be held at the Brooklyn Bridge Park in DUMBO.  Stop by anytime between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. to enjoy music from the Raya Brass Band and partake in a variety of craft projects.

Artist Ed Roth will be on hand to teach a New York-themed project with stencils from his new book, Stencil Style 101, a DIY guide filled with how-tos and die cut reusable stencils for customizing apparel. Stencil on a handkerchief or drawstring ECOBAG or feel free to bring your own item to decorate with Roth’s New York-themed stencils.

Brooklyn-based artist Aya Rosen of LoucheLab will lead a glass painting lesson called  “Message in a Bottle.” Bring your own glass bottle and transform it with New York-inspired illustrations, then write a note and mail your New York message to a friend elsewhere!

Dari Litchman and Melissa Lohman Wild will lead the postcard project from our Craft Party Kit.

Special thanks to Pébéo for supplying us with materials for these colorful projects.

Sample specialty food truck treats from Coolhaus, Kimchi Taco, and the Red Hook Lobster Pound.  Our friends from the Magnolia Photo Booth Company will run one of their vintage style booths to capture party smiles!
