TOUGH AS LEATHER // a collaborative workshop dedicated to those who have a soft spot for learning how to make sustainable handmade goods, and having a DARN swell time with your community.
Chicago friends! I’m proud to share that myself, Alexz of Bird Trouble, and Cara of thedollyfox are offering a super fun 4-day craft adventure called TOUGH AS LEATHER in Chicago’s Wicker Park Locallective Space. We would LOVE to see your faces there!! To sign up, click to head over to Dabble.co!
We are providing each student with a pre-fabricated kit of upcycled textiles, and a hands-on experience on how to combine leather hand-stitching and textile machine-sewing techniques.
Beyond thread hand-stitching techniques for leather, three sewing machines will be readily available so you yourself can learn some basic straight sewing stitches to incorporate textile linings, and to add some fun detailin’ into the mix.
Styles + dates:
We’re also pleased to announce that delicious snacks and beverages will be provided by local Chicago vendors, and we will also have Lauren from Foxtail + Moss shooting photos and hanging out… she’s one of our favorite Chicago lifestyle bloggers!
In the end, you’ll be full of laughter good vibes, and you’ll be leaving with something you made yourself! We can’t wait to have fun! Feel free to email me back with any questions. — xo, Alexz Sandoval
