We know you enjoy rolling up your sleeves for a DIY project, but how often do you get to make leather goods for your everyday wallet needs? The creative folks behind House of Commoners will lead you in a session of leather stitchin’ (and, if you so desire, a little coffee sippin') to fashion a new accessory that you can proudly show off every time you leave the house!
We’ll always jump at the chance to get into a new DIY project, and ending up with creations to complement our sartorial sentiments will send us into absolute fits. Thanks to the crafty folks of Atlanta’s very own House of Commoners
, we have the chance to dive into learning leather craftsmanship with their creative DIY wallet and journal case kits. Stephen of House of Commoners is doing his part to keep Atlanta stitched in the best of leather goods. This DIY leather goods idea was born out of an idea that experiencing small moments of creative enjoyment brings satisfaction money can't buy. Stephen says, “It feels good to hold something in your hands that you’ve made. It carries with it the memories of its creation: the smell of the leather, stitching each piece together, the sacrifice of time, the memory of the time and place you made it, and the feeling of satisfaction when completed.”
Walking into this workshop just makes us feel better about life. Stephen must be using some sort of magic on their his leather; these are the genuine articles here. You’ll be able to experience this DIY magic for yourself when trying your hand at crafting leather goods. Our kind leather smith will teach you everything you need to know and you’ll leave this class with something you can't buy from a store. Plus, nimble-fingered stitchers in training will be working with leather to create leather wallet goodness. And if we know anything about workshops, we know that crafting goes great with craft coffee from Switchyards' private coffee shop. House of Commoners invites you and your crafting cohorts to Switchyards Downtown Club for this leather crafting workshop and you will be supplied with your own leather crafting wallet kit plus some caffeine to sip while ya stitch. So let’s recap: Coffee. Leather. Stitching. Sounds like the makings for a memorable Saturday, if you ask us!
