This is old news to many of you out there, but just in case you're living under a rock and haven't heard about the opening of the first Etsy Labs in Brooklyn, I couldn't describe it better than the Etsy folks themselves:
"a communal creative space where we could offer resources, support, and classes to our users and the DIY community at large. It will be home to parties, trunk shows, seminars, workshops, a lending library, and all other sorts of fantastic things. It will have a silkscreen press, a letterpress, film, music, and video production facilities, jewelry making stations, sewing machines, sergers, and so, so much more."Silkscreen? Letterpress? Sounds like a little slice of creative heaven.
A little sneak peak at the completed kitchen. . .love the flooring:
And if--unlike myself--you have the pleasure of living within access of Brooklyn. . .don't miss the opening on February 1st! Watch Etsy's blog for more news.
