The Back Story



Cleo Brengman- DIY Instructor and Founder

Hi DIY crafters, my name is Cleo! I am from Columbus, Ohio and call NYC my home. I have been working as an art educator in Brooklyn, NY teaching K-8 art. I have worked in the past at privately owned art studios. I’m all over the place with crafts, but my favorites are ceramics, printmaking, and jewelry.

Here at Project Bar we strive to create a fun and creative event for everyone at your choice of bar all over the 5 boroughs of New York City. You pick the project and bar, while we host the event. Everyone leaves fulfilled with a completed DIY craft. Each craft is curated for you so that it is functional, yet aesthetically pleasing. In the end you feel good about learning a new skill or two.
