RJeneration and COJECO present: Meshugeneh House of DIY
From DIY facebook page: DIY is BACK! We’re once again celebrating the Do-It-Yourself ethos, something our Russian Jewish forebears were doing long before it was appropriated by hipsters! Fermenting sauerkraut? Making your own cheese/kvas/pickles/earrings/vodka infusions? We’ll be following in our ancestors footsteps, but also exploring some modern-day pursuits like yoga, body painting, Jewish meditation and art, cloning, drumming, tantra, and much more.
Join us at this incredible Williamsburg rooftop, for a meshugeneh day of workshops. We’re bringing back favorites from the first DIY and adding a slew of new quirks, including a dedicated food track in a commercial kitchen. Choose from workshops running throughout the day, or hang back and mingle. There will be something for everyone. Food, drinks, and a beautiful sunset overlooking the Manhattan skyline are on the menu!
Our amazing array of partners is as eclectic as our community:
* Peace Temple – creating peaceful community events
* DJ Spinach – legendary master of vinyl
* Two Tablespoons – gastronomic geniuses
* Jewish Farm School – fermenting Jewish values AND sauerkraut
* 3rd Ward – offering arts & crafts you’ve only dreamed of
* Jewish Art Salon – blending history, art, and self-expression
* Exclusiv Vodka – pouring a taste of Moldova
* GlitchFairy – transforming space with video art
Stay tuned for workshop details and partner announcements.
