What you'll do

Guests will be welcomed in my cozy leather studio with some delicious appetizers and a beverage (juice, tea, coffee or a glass of wine). I will explain some leather basics and we will talk about everyone's design ideas for their own leather accessory . I like to accommodate my guests ideas and help them create whatever they like as long as it fits within the 3-4 hour time period. We will work with all types of leather and you will familiarize yourself with many tools and techniques. You will have the opportunity to chose from my eclectic fine leather collection, and also work with vegetable tanned leather allowing you to customize your item, by stamping and dyeing it. This is a creative journey where you get to be the designer and create a truly unique piece! Guests will be able to take their one-of-a-kind creation home and will enjoy it forever!

This is a perfect way to celebrate a special occasion, create your one-of-a-kind gift or souvenir and spend an evening getting creative with old and new friends!

All guests will receive a 20% discount on all my leather creations.

I have explored various art mediums in my life and leather craft is by far my favorite! For me it is a beautiful combination of many different art forms that I enjoy; designing, painting, drawing, making clothing, up-cycling and recycling and making the old new again. I'm constantly learning and evolving my craft and exploring new designs for men and women. What I love about leather is that it is a very forgiving medium and all mistakes can be fixed with a little creativity. Working with leather has been extremely rewarding and I naturally want to share my excitement and passion with others!

WOW! This experience with Adisa was so much fun! I had no idea how much I would learn and how much fun it would be hanging out with her and making some fun leather crafts. This workshop was much more than I expected and I think that's due to Adisa's patience, understanding, and advice for those of us who are new to leather. Thankfully, I've done a lot of other diverse crafts in the past, which helped me to pick this up pretty quickly. However, this is a challenging activity so come with an open mind and ready to work! I would highly recommend doing this and I know for a fact that next time we're in San Diego we'd love to do this again!

An amazing time! Adisa is extremely creative, kind, and patient, and she helped us create unique accessories that turned out amazing (even though I do not consider myself a particularly artistic person). She explained every step and helped us along, while giving us tons of encouragement. We felt so welcomed and we would highly recommend this experience to anyone!
