Today, Etsy wants you to come craft all over Dumbo, where the website is headquartered. There’s a whole host of events happening from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. today at its offices and several participating businesses involving DIY activities, demonstrations, and — maybe best of all — good old fashioned coloring. Find the Etsy Craft Party’s best bets below, and see the entire lineup here.
Color with Creative Chaos
Stop by the crafting crawl’s homebase for coloring and face painting by Recess Dumbo. 28 Jay Street
Indulge in Mini Facials at West Elm
Learn to embroider on paper with Miniature Rhino, and if you give your hands too much of a workout, bring them back to life with a hand massage courtesy of Mullein & Sparrow. Knitwear designer purlBknit will be on hand, too (sorry, couldn’t help it). 50 Washington Street
Make a Your Own Hanging Yarn Wall at Trunk
Fiber/photo collage artist Faune Yerby is teaching a make-your-own yarn wall hanging workshop from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. All you need is $20 to cover the cost of the supplies, and you can leave with a new piece of art. 68 Jay Street
Bonus: Jump Around
This isn’t exactly crafting but hey, it’s Friday: Get your bounce on with Recess Dumbo inside a blow up castle until 5 p.m. 81 Washington Street
