Brooklyn Craft Company and Brooklyn Craft Camp were founded by DIY expert Brett Bara. Brett is a Brooklyn resident and crafts professional who saw a need for fun, approachable crafts activities for creative (but busy) New Yorkers. She took her knowledge of the crafts industry, combined it with the Brooklyn DIY scene, added in delicious food, great style, and good music–and Brooklyn Craft Camp was born. Craft Camp was such a success that it spawned a larger initiative, Brooklyn Craft Company: a 1400-square-foot space in a former pencil factory offering a full schedule of modern craft and DIY classes.

Virtual Workshop Crochet 101: Chunky Cowl

Attended: Virtual Workshop Crochet 101: Chunky Cowl


If I could I would give it half a star. The teacher was nice but I didn’t understand any of it. She needed to go slower and make the whole experience more engaging. Maybe use some visual helps and tips to help us remember it. Very boring, wouldn’t do again. Waste of my time. Yarn is poor quality to, kept breaking apart. I didn’t even make a cowl because none of it made sense. Made me want to quit crocheting and never do it again and I have.

I did arm knitting course today with Amelia and she was fantastic! She was friendly, helpful and welcoming and repeated everything several times so could learn. She helped us too along way with helping with issues that popped up.

The instructor was great, and I love Brooklyn Craft Co. I only wish the class size had been a little smaller, or perhaps there had been a second instructor or assistant, to minimize the time spent waiting for someone to check on how we were doing and answer questions. But I would still recommend the class anyway!

I loved this class! The instructor was very helpful and patient, and I felt like I really had a good grasp of sewing 101 when the class was over. LOVE my skirt. Highly recommend!

I had a great time in this Modern Calligraphy course. Margaret Fu was patient and informative, giving everyone individual attention and assistance. The class was easy-going and went by fast. We left with practice materials, useful tips, ink, a nib, and a nib holder. I would definitely recommend this class to others.

The class was very fun and relaxed, but I wish there was more emphasis on technique. A lot of it was open time to work, but I would have liked to see more examples of some of the things we could do with punch needle. I am really enjoying my piece that I finished! Also if you are going to the class they will have yarn for you, but bear in mind that if you are not able to finish in time they won't let you take the yarn with you. I thought that part was a bummer as had I known I would have done certain colors first since I have some other plain yarns at home.
