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 appreciated the intimate size of the group and how relaxing it was to practice this beautiful way to write.

I loved the laid-back vibe of this class. The teacher gives just enough direction and leaves us free to explore and experiment with the different materials and techniques available, but is always there to help. Really fun to do with a friend or SO.

It was a good introduction to punch needle. I would have liked to learn more techniques and/or create images.

This was a really helpful class! I haven’t crocheted in years but the way the class was taught I was able to pick it back up pretty easily. There was enough time to make 1-2 of the hexagons and we were shown how to stitch them together. We also received written instructions which was appreciated!

The first time slot I signed up for got cancelled. On my second try, the instructor was an hour late. But luckily her ad hoc substitute was very knowledgeable and gracious and started the class off just fine. I hadn't sewed on a machine in 50 years, and I quickly learned what I had probably been doing wrong all those years ago. The tote bag project was perfect for the time allotted and for the basic skills that were taught, and I'm pretty proud of the finished product. I will definitely sign up for another class soon.
