Homemade: brooklyn


We are now accepting vendors, event ideas, and work shop teachers for the new Homemade: brooklyn that is set to pop up on June 25 -27.

Homemade: brooklyn is a showcase for all locally made products and performers. It is a tightly curated collection of artists, designers, chefs, and enthusiasts from around the borough. I wanted to promote the diverse creativity that is happening in Brooklyn today and give a platform for new and established businesses.

The June event at Metropolitan Green in Williamsburg is quickly filling up with vendors and I am busy booking events for each day. These type of events will include both food vendors and performers from art to music expressing everything that the creative community has to offer.

Friday – Opening of the Event

Saturday – Day of “Happenings”
Interactions including Musical performances, Miniatures Rhino’s Lettering Writing Service, and Films from local directors and bands

Inclusion in Williamsburg Walks

Sunday – Workshops
Off the Mat – at home Bath and Body products
Brooklyn Brainery – TBD workshop

This event has had two huge features in Time out New York, NBC’s blog The Thread, New York’s The Cut, Paper Magazines’ blog, Daily Candy, and many others. We have an extremely active facebook page, twitter account, and blog we are also launching a full website shortly.

Homemade:Brooklyn is excited to be planning our third showcase and pop-up shop opening June 25th at 439 Metropolitan Avenue. This time we are starting a fundraiser through KickStarter to offset the vendor fees for all the creative talent involved. There are so many fabulous artist out there who need a place to show their work and we would love to give them and the Homemade:Brooklyn show as much support as possible. We will be giving out special gifts and rewards to our backers as the fundraising goes on. With a goal of $1500 we hope to give more  artists and designers a place to share their work. Please check out our KickStarter page and we will keep you posted on rewards, gifts and ofcourse the June Homemade:Brooklyn line up! xxoo

As a part of Homemade: Brooklyn’s amazing week at 522 Metropolitian, Brooklyn Brainery will be hosting a Perfume Workshop on Tuesday April 27th from 7-9pm. The Brooklyn Brainery puts together tons of inexpensive collaborative classes on just about anything. They have offered a great way for individuals to share their interests and strengths with others that are eager to learn.

The classes are lead by class leaders who stand as someone who is some what experienced in the topic and they help to navigate the other class members to their own unique approach to the material. Homemade:Brooklyn looks forward to having Brooklyn Brainery involved with their perfume workship. Dont foregt to sign up at brooklynbrainery.com/workshops !

Miniature Rhino

April 25, 2010

Miniature Rhino was created by Brooklyn artist Jessica Marquez. The theme of her work is revolved around collection and  keeping mementos. Miniature Rhino is her line for handmade goods, from embroidery to small notes and love letters. The Miniature Rhino blog is a collage of images that inspire her and creations she has put together. On April 25th Miniature Rhino will be doing a performance piece for Homemade: Brooklyn that will involve interactive mail making. This is something you will not want to miss.
