Have you checked out the Better Than Jam Co-Op yet? Located at 1095 Flushing Ave, the Co-Op is soon to be neighbors with 20 other diverse businesses that will inhabit the "Markets at the Loom," providing a varied destination for local shoppers to shop and browse. The Co-Op brings Bushwick the talent of 15+ NYC designers, who create a variety of clothing, jewelry, and accessories.
They also have really great classes! In fact, I'll be teaching a 2 part workshop starting on Wed. Feb. 23rd (6pm-8pm) and if you've ever wanted to make your own jewelry - this class is a great introduction. We'll cover: working with jewelry tools, wrapping wire and rings, creating your own earring hooks and clasps, types of metals, patinas and finishes, suppliers, design and assembling pieces. If you are unsure about tools, techniques and materials this is a great way to get started! More info about this class here.
