Do-It-Yourself Thursdays at Museum of Arts and Designs!

A friend of mine sent this information to me this morning and I simply can't wait to go! This is why I love NYC.... There is SO MUCH going on in this city for free that one should never claim they are bored.

For the month of August, Thursday nights at the Museum of Arts and Design, will host a night of crafts led by artists and designers inspired by the materials and techniques of the items currently on display at the museum. This sounds like so much fun!

ETSY has partnered with the museum to produce these nights of do-it-yourself fun! For those of you that are not familiar with ETSY, it is a site where designers and artists can sell their handmade goods. There is a lot of interesting items on the site, but also a lot of "church bazaar" items as well! ;)

"The series kicks off on Thursday, August 6 with a workshop lead by artist Sabrina Gschwandtner, founder and editor of KnitKnit. Sabrina will demonstrate a few simple ways to combine textile art and jewelry into one beautiful project: crocheted jewelry. Sabrina will be teaching how to make earrings (design by Julie A. Bolduc) and boutonnieres that are perfect for summer weddings, picnics, and barbeques. Materials will be provided."

If I am able to go, I will for sure post pictures of the finished product. Really looking forward to it, and more importantly, I am looking forward to exploring this city!
