Always lots to do in the neighborhood on Valentine's Day (weekend). Tomorrow, check out Brooklyn Skillshare's Big Big City, an art market featuring workshops on everything from bookmaking to Japanese tea ceremonies, at LaunchPad. The fun starts with confetti-egg-making at 11am. A little later in the day, head over to Juice Hugger on Rogers for a Valentine's Day Pop-Up Gift Store with free juice and snacks from 1-6pm (click on the flyers above for more info).
Also, congratulations to Ground Up Designers, who reached their goal of raising $4,500 on Kickstarter for Art Not Arrests, their community-oriented architecture installation for the Crow Hill Community Garden. Their strong finish (nearly half of the money was raised over the last few days) was made possible by the generous support of several local businesses and organizations, listed below. Thanks to all of them for helping to fund this fantastic project.
