What's Happening at the Kickstarter Block Party, Part 2
Share this post
By now, you may have heard that we’re having a block party this Saturday, May 3rd from 12-6. You don’t need to RSVP or anything — just show up at any point, and there’ll be a bunch of cool stuff to try out and good food to eat. In addition to the debut of our art gallery, a lot of other Kickstarter alumni are showing off their goods. We asked them what they'll be bringing to the table (for the first part of the block party roundup, see here).
What can people expect from your booth?
Short Stack: "At the Short Stack Editions booth, we'll show you how to hand-stitch one of our books with baker's twine. And, of course, we'll be selling all of our cookbooks, as well as some other gifts and goodies."
Satya Twena: "We are selling our newest product (and soon-to-be Kickstarter project), a fashionable sun protective hat. We will also be doing custom monograms on site, so clients can customize their hats at the event!"
SKT Ceramics: "I'll be exhibiting and selling my sturdy high fired porcelain cups, mugs and bowls, screen printed with original SKT illustrations, all made in my Williamsburg studio with the new SKT RAM press, purchased through our Kickstarter campaign. We're also pulling out the wheel and will be giving demos and letting attendees try their hand at throwing porcelain, our clay of choice at SKT Ceramics."
Sogi’s Honey Bakeshop: "People can expect my utter elation at their presence, alongside loads of undecorated cookie canvases, heaps of colors and brushes and sprinkles, and a crash course in my quirky means of cookie decor!"
We Flashy: "We're having a We-Flashy pop up shop at the block party. We're super-excited about meeting people from the Kickstarter community — backers, project creators, and showing them the reflective clothing that we make. We'll have tanks, shirts, and sweaters — all great for being seen on dimly-lit streets, without looking like a crossing guard."
yMusic: "A lively conversation amongst friends who happen to have pieces of paper on stands between them. A set of music that was written for the group and that speaks to the relationship between songs, chamber music and city life. Pieces by songwriters (Sufjan Stevens), composers (Marcos Balter) and folks somewhere in between (Son Lux). Strings, woodwinds, brass, guitar!"
