Join Lydia Rhyne of Brass Button Events and Klum House for a leather goods workshop. In just 3 hours, you’ll complete three different leather projects. We will show you how to hand sew leather, set rivets, stamp metal and leather, and use an industrial snap press. While working alongside others, we’ll share an afternoon of creativity, and you’ll take home beautiful products made with your own hands.

What to Expect

Spend the evening with us in the fun, relaxed DIY class. We'll drink beers & wine, make rad things with our hands and hang out. Leave with new knowledge of leather working & "I made this!" bragging rights.
