Chicago Gets In On Etsy Global Craft Day

By Staff in Arts & Entertainment on Jun 6, 2014 3:30PM

2014_06_etsy_craft_party.jpg "Recapture: bring new meaning to your photographs" is the theme of this year’s Etsy’s Global Craft Day. The event encourages crafters to meet their neighbors by either hosting a party or attending an event.

Chicagoans looking to make art and meet fellow DIY-ers have their pick of several events starting late this afternoon and continuing into the night. Paperish Mess, Urban Oil Ceramics and Neighborly are all offering workshops or drop-in demos on how to transform postcards and photos into new treasures.

Some events require a ticket, an RSVP and/or are BYOB so make sure you check before heading out. For more information check out the craft party page with today's Chicago events.
