Join us Thursday March 8th at 7p for our Leather Moon Bag Workshop. In this fun and easy class we will take some basic leather making skills and apply them towards designing and making your very own leather half-moon bag. It’s a mini size that is perfect for holding extra goodies in your bag or taking it solo out on the town. It holds cards, lip products and other small things. You won’t leave home without it!

This leather working class is designed to put you in the maker’s seat. Learning a skill and then immediately applying it to your project will give you the confidence to put your skills to practice in a future project. So whether you are seeking a fun night out with friends or want to learn a new skill - future you will be “over the moon” with this class (see what we did there?) 

Skills we will cover-

Basic Leather Working:

-Leather punching

-Leather tanning

Basic Sewing Skills:

-Cutting out a pattern

-Hand Sewing and Finishing Techniques

Our instructor, Rebecca Saylor has taught many past gather workshops and owns her own business, Oodlebadoodle, where she creates adorable San Francisco themed plushies with whimsical fabric patterns. She will give you the knowledge to go home and create endless leather crafts you and your friends. Sign up early, seating is limited.

Block Print a Top Workshop

Daisy McClellanComment

Join us Thursday December 1st at 7pm as we learn the basics of block printing from local designer, Jennie Lennick to create personalized boxy tops*. In this workshop you will learn how to carve a block, apply ink, print, and add detail with fabric paint. Once you learn the techniques you'll want to print on more clothing, dish towels, paper, and more...the possibilities are endless...and will make great holiday gifts! All supplies are included and every student will leave with their very own custom top!

Jennie owns Jenny Lemons, a small-batch clothing company based in the Mission. Jennie learned to sew, bake, and embroider as a child growing up in rural Minnesota and draws inspiration from traditional domestic craft. She moved to the Bay Area to attend the San Francisco Art Institute, where she studied painting. Jennie loves constructing garments that are playful, comfortable, and made with natural and organic fibers.  We love carrying her designs at gather. 

This two hour class also includes wine and snacks and a discount on merchandise in the store that night. No experience needed- all levels welcome!
