Escape the madness of holiday shopping and get in touch with your creative side at Brooklyn Craft Company’s DIY Gift Boot Camp this Saturday at its new space in Greenpoint we wrote about in September. Sign up for one or several classes designed to help you produce handmade, personalized presents for lucky friends and family members, including leather business card holders, terrariums, charm necklaces and glass etchings. Each class is $45 or $65 and includes all the materials necessary to complete your project, instruction by a qualified teacher, use of Brooklyn Craft Company’s free gift wrap bar, hot cocoa, music and a swag bag full of crafty treats. You can sign up for as many classes as you like—just be sure to register in advance so you are guaranteed a spot.
