13th February 12:00pm-5:30pm
COVID-19 Update: Due to the easing of restrictions in Melbourne we are opening up for in-studio workshops to commence again. There is a maximum of 8 x participants in each course date.
Make your own XS Moon Coin Purse, or M Moon Phone Pouch in our Brunswick based atelier where you will be guided through the steps by Simone in small class sizes. All materials and tools are provided.
Simone exclusively uses vegetable tanned kangaroo leather [tanned with plants vs chemicals], which is considered to be the most eco-friendly & humane source of leather available today. Read more on this here. Vegetable tanned leather will age with you, adding uniqueness to the finished piece as you use it, telling a story of who you are as time goes on. Simone believes that adding sentiment to products is what encourages people cherish them for longer, keeping things out of landfill and hopefully passed onto loved ones.
There's more to learn about sustainability in fashion and consuming leather products, all of which you'll hear about in the workshops.
There is a 4 participant minimum needed for this workshop to run, so in the event booking numbers are not reached, you will be notified and offered a different workshop date or refunded.
Know someone who would love to learn leathercraft too? Order 2 x or more tickets and get 5% off for sharing the love. Discount applied automatically at the checkout.
We personalise your project with your name, or unique phrase to make it more unique to you. Your personalisation can be up to 12 characters long, and will be foil embossed in gold foil matching the metal colour of the zip on the purse.
