Leather Bag Workshop with Andrea Morgenstern

  • Camera Obscura Art Lab 1450 Ocean Avenue Santa Monica, CA, 90401 United States (map)

Give your tired leather goods new life by creating something repurposed and ready to be loved! We'll be learning how to hand-saddlestitch a coin pouch, clutch, zippered pouch or card holder out of recycled leather. Do you have an old leather coat that has been sitting around unused? Or perhaps you're getting rid of a leather sofa and want to save some of it?

Bring your clean used leather - from jackets, duffels, pillows or couches. Vegan leather (vinyl or thicker ultrasuede types) welcome. A small zipper or magnetic clasp and scrap leather will be provided. Shared tools will be available but you can bring your own scissors or rotary knife if you like.

Andrea Morgenstern is a graphic designer / crafter who enjoys costuming, prop making, mending, renewing, repurposing, renovating and up-cycling. She loves to empower others by sharing her DIY knowledge. She is a Faux Frau at the Sewing Rebellion 2nd Saturdays of the month, 11am to 2pm at Camera Obscura.
