About "Brooklyn Kids Crafts":
Brooklyn Kids Crafts is a Brooklyn-based boutique art program for children ages 5+. With a background in fashion design and a passion for all things hand-made, I created Brooklyn Kids Crafts to help empower kids to engage in the creative process. I've lead camps, workshops, classes, and birthday parties all over Brooklyn and am always looking to bring the joy of crafting to more kids! Whether you're looking for an enriching summer or school break experience for your creative little one, you want to throw your child the best birthday party ever, or you want to bring an engaging and unique after school program to your school, Brooklyn Kids Crafts is the place for you!
MY NAME IS jordyn
I have my Bachelor's Degree in Fashion Design from Shenkar College of Design, Israel's leading design institution. Upon moving to New York City, I immediately began working in the fashion industry as a designer for world-renowned American fashion designer, Anna Sui. After gaining industry experience, I made the choice to take a leap of faith and launch my own line of handmade handbags and accessories, inspired by and incorporating my love for hand-woven textiles from around the world. As a way to pay the rent while building my brand, I took on a few teaching jobs and quickly came to understand that the true magic lies in combining these two passions. Since 2016, I have been teaching summer art programs, running camps and private workshops, and creating customized birthday craft activities for children all over Brooklyn. Knitting, sewing, embroidering, and creating all things with my own two hands has been therapeutic to me for as long as I can remember and I am passionate about passing on these important skills to the next generation. In the age of excessive screen time, perfectionism, and high-achievement, I believe that art is a powerful tool to teach kids that any "mistake" can be turned into something beautiful and meaningful and most importantly, can help them to grow and learn.
