Our favorite Portland leather goods designer, Lori Caldwell of Minnie + George returns for a weekend of workshops! Come join designer & founder of Minnie + George, L.A.

In this 3.5 hr class, you'll learn: How to cut and prep leather to sew. How to use the basic tools needed to practice traditional leather-working. How to saddle-stitch. How to apply protective finishes. All needed supplies and leather are provided for the class.
