Yesterday afternoon I ventured off to Hotel Colee, to meet the talented duo behind Glad & Young who hosted an interactive leather accessory workshop. It was so much fun you guys and I got to learn something new! I was so excited to get out the house lol.
Anna Zietz and Erica Verges are the co-founders of Glad & Young a design studio producing fun-loving goods that are dreamed up and created by hand in their Atlanta, Ga studio (Located in Citizen Supply in Ponce City Market).
Since 2015, they have set out to make bags and accessories that are daring, colorful, and full of personality. During their one-hour workshop at Hotel Colee, guests and I got a chance to sip on a complimentary cocktail while Anna and Erica demonstrated and taught the ins and outs of introductory leather working, along with tips for creating eye-catching patterns and customizations.
I never worked with leather before, so I really found this experience intriguing. Check out a few snaps from the event inside plus what I made lol. Their workshops would be fun to do with friends or significant other.
I picked a soft pink palette
My leather personalized coasters, this leather is the same used to make Louis Vuitton handles on their purses, wow!
