This year for Greenpoint Open Studios (June 2-3, 12-6pm), in addition to opening up their studios to the public, some of our favorite Greenpoint artists are offering rainbow-tinted workshops and live demos of their craft. From a screenprinting workshop to textile dyeing to pottery demonstrations, here are our our top picks for you to get a little more DIY during GOS this weekend!

Color Theory Through Screenprinting
Sunday, June 3rd | 1pm
