Craft Night: Screenprinting Class

Today I’m so excited to share the photos from our screenprinting last week. We had over 120 people come through our studio on Saturday and Sunday, there was so much energy and we had so much fun! At the beginning of each class, I shared some of my favorite ways to use Bing search for crafting. Then, my friend Andy Kane from Sparka Screenprinting taught everyone how to make and use a screenprinter. Then we had 6 screenprinters ready to go and everyone printed like crazy. We provided everyone with a T-Shirt (thanks American Apparel!) and tote bag to print on. People also brought the most creative things to try (baby onesies, clutches, aprons) in the screenprinter. I have to give special thanks to Merrilee Liddiard & Erin Jang for their beautiful designs and thanks to my friend Rebecca Wright for putting it all together!

Our food came from Green Heart Foods – my new favorite restaurant near our studio. They have the best salads and snacks! They also have really yummy cookies that I couldn’t stop eating all weekend.

Everyone who came got an awesome swag bag from 4 special sponsors. Tattly sent over all kinds of temporary tattoos! They seriously have the most creative designs. (Arrows pictured below.)

Caldrea provided everyone with the most beautiful bottles of hand soap (that smell SO good.) And MakeshopNYC sent over a bunch of these colorful confetti garlands – perfect for wrapping a gift or hanging as decoration!

Craft Night: Necklace Class

Last week we held our first Craft Night in our new studio. I was excited to see how it would all work in the new space. I taught the first class on how to make beads from materials found at the hardware store (like hardwoods and brass and copper pipes.) It was a super fun group of people and we had so much fun making necklaces. At the beginning of class we did introductions and I showed everyone my favorite features of Bing. I love the image search so we looked for color inspiration online and then got to work painting our beads. (ps: the travel search is the BEST.)  A huge thank you to all of the sponsors who donated items to our goodie bags! They were awesome (see below.)

We served creme brulee from The Creme Brulee Cart during the event so everyone could snack while they crafted. It was SO good!

Projecteo sent over a bunch of their tiny Instagram projectors for all attendees! These things are super fun to play with – they project images from your Instagram feed onto the wall! They came with a reel of some of my favorite photos. But everyone also got a voucher to order a reel from their own Instagram feed.

Cute Tape supplied everyone with a roll of washi tape and an awesome camera dispenser. They’re the perfect desk accessory!

Chronicle Books sent us these Polaroid Love Notes. All of the images on the cards are so beautiful.  They’re almost too pretty to give away (I might keep them all for myself!)

And Meri Meri (one of my long-term sponsors) gave each attendee their Toot Sweet Aqua Striped Napkins & Plates. I love that these look like circus tents! They’re perfect for any special occasion.

Letterpress Craft Night Recap

Last week we had our letterpress craft night! It was a really great night. We were able to donate all the money from the tickets to our local community preschool. A huge thanks to my friend Rebecca Wright who planned the event. Over 50 people attended and we had a great time eating and learning about letterpress. Also a big thanks to all the brands who donated items for the gift bags! They were really good (see below.)

Andrea Pimental was our caterer.  She impressed everyone with homemade oreos and Mexican-inspired salads. Our new Craft Night logos (designed by the amazing Clayton Thompson) were printed on canvas tote bags which held all the sponsored swag.

Coatt sent over a few delicate necklaces with gold dots and dashes that spelled out words and phrases in morse code. Ours came with words like “yeehaw” and “lucky.” And Hello Merch supplied every excited attendee with their own Champ Sweatshirt.

The Succulence, an adorable local succulent supplier that also offers classes and landscaping services, sent over 50+ mini plants for us hand out. We planted them in magnetic pods from Urbio, an awesome Bay Area startup that specializes in modular organization.

Photojojo, who also happens to be our neighbor, made sure everyone received a Tokyo Dreamer camera strap. Made of durable vegan leather, these are strong enough to hold SLRs, DSLR’s and their big ‘ol lenses. Ps: check out their awesome Phoneography 101 class.

Finally, Paper Source donated all the paper and envelopes we used for the letterpress demonstration. Their Luxe paper line notecards are my favorite for letterpressing. And their envelopes are the best (and come in amazing colors.)

We’d like to say a huge thank you for everyone who attended – and to all of our wonderful sponsors! We’re in the process of coordinating more Craft Nights this month. So stay tuned for the announcements!
