Designing Brooklyn

With the advent of BKLYN Designs this weekend, the New York Times looks extensively the borough's flourishing design scene, with the DUMBO event "drawing renewed attention to this neighborhood of former factories and warehouses, and its vibrant design scene."

It's not just home furnishings that are flourishing in the borough. The coming of spring inevitably brings a craft fair every weekend to schools and parks, with the creativity of Brooklynites evident in its weekly indie and flea markets, and makes the borough a destination for annual events like the Renegade Craft Fair (coming to McCarren Park this June 6 and 7).

You can get in on the fun tonight at 3rd Ward with the social mixer Craft on Draught: Get Felt Up at our Springtime Social, brought together by the gallery and the craft store Spacecraft Brooklyn, as well as STC Craft, and Bags for the People.

Learn how to make felted drink coasters and cozies from old sweaters, with the materials provided to turn something old into something new, cute and unique.

The event runs from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at 3rd Ward, and costs $10 ($5 wtih a friend).
