Tap into your inner craftsperson at this hands-on leather workshop hosted by West Elm (8366 Beverly Blvd). For $65 admission, local leathersmith Toni will guide students of all levels through their initial design visions and onto the construction process, lending her expertise in decorative stitching techniques, hardware ideas, embossing, painting and more. Materials and tools will be provided at the workshop, as well as a few light refreshments to keep crafters appropriately fueled. Whether you end up with a belt, coin purse, wallet or something a bit more abstract (we hear this particular project is a dreamy envelope clutch), you'll likely feel more artisanal than you have since creating your reclaimed wood Pinterest board.
