LEATHER & LAUGHS ~ A Night of Creating Leather Art

Fashion Designer and Leather Artisan Lisa Cantalupo offering instruction during a Leather & Laughs event night

Leather & Laughs ~ Come Create with Me!

It was during the most trying and challenging times in my life when creating with leather lightened the load and brought a sense of relief from the chaos of the circumstances that were surrounding me. Creating took the focus off my problems, and centered them on giving birth to something new...a mission other than survival. Creating with leather helped to save me, and now, I want to share the experience of creating with you!

I invite you to come create with me! Come find, develop and hone your leather-crafting skills. I will take you through the process of making your very own leather art piece, from start to finish - one of my original designs, or maybe one of yours. On our journey together, I am certain we will share a few laughs too, and in the end, you will bring home with you a leather masterpiece...one that you can show off to your family and friends while remembering our special time together.
