Brooklyn Craft Company and Brooklyn Craft Camp were founded by DIY expert Brett Bara. Brett is a Brooklyn resident and crafts professional who saw a need for fun, approachable crafts activities for creative (but busy) New Yorkers. She took her knowledge of the crafts industry, combined it with the Brooklyn DIY scene, added in delicious food, great style, and good music–and Brooklyn Craft Camp was born. Craft Camp was such a success that it spawned a larger initiative, Brooklyn Craft Company: a 1400-square-foot space in a former pencil factory offering a full schedule of modern craft and DIY classes.

I think that the instructor was extremely knowledgable and patient with all the questions that were asked regarding the steps to creating the piece. The project itself was really nice and was a perfect amount of time to make it. I am glad that we will be sent a video of the process, as I would like to create it again using different material. I would definitely take another class with this instructor.

The class taught me several specific watercolor techniques. Amanda showed her work in progress as well as close up details of a finished example. It was organized and very easy to follow. There was a friendly exchange with the other participants which added to fun. After learning techniques we had a chance to paint on our own while she continued by showing how she developed her painting.

Virtual Workshop: Arm Knitting

Te instructor was patient and used her camera to ensure we could see each step. I wish we had gotten more detail about the yarn rather than just telling us what to purchase from their store. I had tons of yarn so I didn’t buy any and didn’t understand that the technique works better with thicker yarn, or that I needed two balls and not one.
