Minnie + George DIY Leather Tote Workshop

Minnie + George DIY Leather Tote Workshop

Our favorite Portland leather goods designer, Lori Caldwell of Minnie + George returns for a weekend of workshops! In this 4 hour class, we'll provide all of the supplies, hardware and leather to make your very own tote bag.

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, and how to apply straps, hardware and protective finishes. All needed supplies, hardware, and leather are provided for the class. In addition to a completed tote bag at the end of class, students will receive an instruction manual with full dimensions of bag, step-by-step how-to guide, leather-working tips and information on resources.

Catered lunch is available for pre-order and includes a sandwich or salad of your choice, chips and housemade pickles. Add to your cart any time up until Wednesday 1/10 and we'll be in touch to confirm your menu selections. Join us in the Back Bar after class for happy hour!
