If you’ve been procrastinating on your holiday shopping, don’t you worry, we’re here for you. While most of Brooklyn’s wonderful craft markets have packed up, to hibernate until next year, there’ still a few that can provide you with all the hand-made, locally sourced holiday cheer that you can handle. All markets open Saturday and Sunday unless otherwise noted.
The Gowanus Print Lab turns a year old this Saturday! You know, the Gowanus Print Lab? That really cool screen printing workspace that offers tools, classes, workshops and exhibition space for emerging artists? They’re celebrating by giving YOU something: the chance to screen print your own T shirts and buttons for free! The party this Saturday boasts free cocktails courtesy of SoBe (yes, we just said FREE DRANKS) and beats by DJ J. Dayz, in addition to making your own stuff in the Print Lab. Partygoers can get a glimpse at the screen printing process and bring their own shirts, or buy them there to print their choice of several urban-cool designs. SoBe will be giving away a limited number of T-shirts, skateboards and posters.
The party is 7-11 at Gowanus Print Labs, 54 Second Ave. We suggest getting there on the early side, before all the free crap runs out. But, like, not so early that you look like a weirdo. Maybe like 8:30 or 9? Okay, cool.
