Happy holidays, friends! We're so very grateful for you and your interest in our small studio. It's been a pretty wild year filled with adventures, renovations, a new studio, and some major changes for us all. We'll be closing the studio from 12/23-1/9 to hibernate a bit this winter. All orders placed between now and then will ship on 1/10. Thank you for being here & for sharing your day with us. May 2017 bring us all much joy, health, and happiness! xoxox
Join us for our LAST holiday event this Sunday, December 11th at the West Elm Austin store from 12-4pm. We'll be there with friends Leah Duncan and Zoe Comings offering handmade gifts for your holiday list-- jewelry, textiles, prints, and leather goods. See you then, friends!
Time to hit the road again for the holidays! Join us this weekend in HOUSTON for Bodega Negra, a new pop up show. We'll be teaching a Leather Tray Workshop on Saturday, December 3rd from 2-5pm at Saint Cloud (get tickets here). Seats are going fast, so don't delay! The big event is Sunday, December 4th from 11-6pm at 2201 Preston St in downtown Houston. We're excited to be joining 20+ great local designers, including our friends Evens, Miranda Bennett, Angel Oloshove, and Julia Gabriel. See ya'll there!
We're excited to be headed back to San Francisco this week for West Coast Craft, November 12-13th at Fort Mason Festival Pavilion from 10-6pm. This show is filled with my favorite artists from around the US, so it's both inspiring and draws such a great crowd. Our booth will be smack in the middle (D18 on the map), so please swing by and say hello! We'll be bringing our custom leather goods, new furniture, and artwork. If you're an interior designer or architect, we'd especially love to chat with you about collaborating on a project!
On Tuesday, November 15th, we'll be teaching a new workshop in San Francisco at Workshop Residence. Join us to learn the basics of leather tooling and make a hand tooled & stitched leather bottle wrap. It's a perfect way to dress up a holiday bottle for dinner parties. We'll explore various construction techniques, tooling designs, cut outs, hand dyeing, etc. over the course of a fun evening with drinks and snacks provided. Reserve your spot here!
On Wednesday, November 16th, we're returning to Handcraft Studio School at their new location in El Cerrito for a Leather Tray Workshop. If you missed our workshop last year, now's your chance. We'll tool, hand dye, and hand stitch a tray that's perfect for your bedside table or office desk. It'll be a fun evening with drinks and snacks provided, so join us mid-week and learn some new skills!
Times slips away very quickly these days. Between social media, in person events, and chatting with friends, sometimes I forget what I have shared where. Does this happen to you, as well? I post an event on twitter, then forget to tell folks on facebook, or when I meet them at a pop up. Smart business folks have "strategies" for what they share where, and I know I've thought about that at some point. Probably hidden in a google doc.
All this to say, we designed a Pouf! It's called the Ridges Pouf, designed for Casablanca Living and made in Morocco. This process was so fun that we've now busy working on new designs. Stay tuned for more pouf news.
Join us on 4/9 for the opening reception of PHASES, a solo art exhibition at Kettle & Brine.Read More
