THIS WEEKEND: Handmade Holiday Craft Fair at 3rd Ward

2009 Handmade Holiday Craft

Soon enough Christmas will be upon us. For this reason those of you who are behind on your gift shopping (like me) should pencil in 3rd Ward’s annual Handmade Holiday Craft Fair this upcoming Saturday, December 12th! Among the items promised at this event are:

  • two floors teeming with crafts and culinary treats
  • live music
  • screenings of cult holiday classics
  • free coffee
  • delicious drinks, tasty treats and free workshops

It should also be noted that the first 300 guests will receive a free tote bag designed by Fernanda Cohen filled with goodies! Which brings me to this closing piece of advice: GO EARLY. This event gets packed very, very quickly. I speak from experience when I write this.

I never knew a rummage sale/swap required “curators”. But what do I know? I work at a junk shop. This could be fun!

fabricthumbnailI’ve been doing a lot of spring cleaning of late. You know, getting rid of stuff you told yourself— REPEATEDLY— that you would do something with. But never did. Here’s your opportunity to dump, drink and make. Leslie writes:

Bring out your busted sewing projects, tired T-shirts, hideous hand-me-downs—basically all the crappy clothes from your closet that you don’t want anymore, or the stuff you’ve been meaning to make awesome—for the ultimate happy hour of destruction, reconstruction, and social mixing!

You provide the scrap, we’ll provide the beer, inspiration, crafting tools, and help from author-crafters Heather Ross and Kayte Terry—plus special projects for purchase: Scrappliqué undies, totebags, cards, jewelry boxes, picture frames, onesies and T-shirts (with that new T-shirt smell)!

WHEN: April 2, 2009.

WHERE: Spacecraft Brooklyn
355 Bedford Avenue

TOMORROW: Inflatable Art & More

Filed under: Bushwick, Greenpoint Magic, Williamsburg 

There is going to be a number of wonderful ways to while away this upcoming three day weekend here in north Brooklyn. Follows are a couple of art-related events I found of particular interest scheduled for tomorrow, January 16th. Give one (or both) of  ’em a whirl!

inflatableart

Tomorrow, January 16, from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. 3rd Ward will be hosting a one-night exhibition of inflatable sculpture. In addition to a 3,000 square foot space teeming with air-filled goodness live music by DJ Tanner, complementary drinks and a crash course on how to make your own inflatable art work is promised. I for one think this sounds like a LOT of fun. If you think so too you should RSVP via email at events (at) 3rdward (dot) com.*

hiddenpeople

Next up, Hidden People and a few friends will be performing at Papa B Studios. The incredibly wallet-friendly $3.00 cover fee will not only buy you an evening of musical entertainment, but you’ll also get to savor the photographic stylings of Jonathan Fasulo. I’m not certain if this one man show will feature any work from his “mustached babies” series, but for a mere three bucks it’s well worth making the trek to find out!

Papa B Studios
907 Broadway
Brooklyn, New York 11206

Stay tuned, I have more Martin Luther King weekend goodness to share!
