Maker Classes

Experience Portland's maker culture with your own two hands! In this 90-minute class you'll be designing and making your own premium leather products. No experience is required!  We'll give you a tour of the shop, share the story of our small business, and take you through our small-scale production process—a unique mix of new manufacturing methods and traditional craft techniques. 

Class description

To start this 90-minute class, we'll share our small business story and give you a tour of the shop. You'll get hands-on designing and creating three Woolly Made products that will be yours to keep. No experience is necessary. Along the way we'll show you our unique small-scale production process -- how we blend new manufacturing methods and traditional craft techniques.

Here's what you get:

  • 1 Stick-On Wallet: Choose your leather colors and thread color and then sew it yourself with our help.
  • 1 Keychain: Choose your keychain style, leather color and hardware color, and then assemble it yourself with our help.
  • 1 Small Wallet: Choose the Half Wallet, Flip Wallet, Case Wallet or Snap Wallet. Choose your leather colors, thread color, etched patterns and custom inscription. These wallets each take more than an hour to make, you can pick up your custom wallet when it’s done in about a week or we can mail it to you for free.
  • Want something else? If you want to customize one of our bigger wallets instead, that works! You can pay the difference ahead of time or when you’re here at the shop.

It is an amazing workshop!! You got a great product with perfect quality and you can personalize it. The best "souvenir" to get. Jake is such a nice warmly guy and he explains the Making Of in a really good way. I can highly recommend it. It is definitive a highlight in Portland.

I had a fantastic time on this experience with Jake & Jeff! I loved hearing the stories of how they got started with their craft and how it’s been evolving. I really enjoyed the hands in experience of creating my own wallet and watching the laser cutter in action. Jeff & Jake were incredibly welcoming and friendly and I’d recommend this experience to anyone traveling to (or living in) Portland! This is quintessential maker Portland! And now I have a beautifully crafted Woolly wallet!

Jake and Jeff were passionate, knowledgeable, and friendly Hosts who have created a fantastic experience designing and making beautiful leather wallets. Deeply embedded in Portland's strong Maker community, they shared the inspiring story of how they got started and talked about how they've stayed focused on their values and true dedication to their craft every step of the way. I highly recommend this experience, learning from Jake and Jeff, and leaving with a gorgeous, personalized wallet.

Jake shared his story and told us about how he started a leather goods business which was fascinating. He is certainly very passionate about what he does and it does not go unnoticed. We went over the process of laser-cutting and got to stitch some leather pieces together. Then we created designs for our wallets and Jake sent finished products within a couple of days after. I just got mine, looks sleek and clean, I love it! I definitely recommend this experience to everyone who is looking to learn more about leather products. Also, perfect for those who are looking to glance into the vibrant entrepreneurial Portland arts scene as the workshop takes place at an old ship building warehouse filled with all sorts of artists and interesting pieces. Ask Jake for a tour!

Jake was a great host. We met at his workshop, a bright and creative area. He walked us through how to sew a wallet and leathersmithing techniques. Overall, great experience, you get to take a little part of Portland home with you.

JENNIFER

Was a very fun and relaxed atmosphere. We were right in the workshop and we were shown exactly what the process was. It was incredibly informative and I feel that I learned a lot but also had a lot of fun during. You could really tell he knew what he was talking about and was passionate about his company and what he does. I’d definitely recommend this experience for anyone.

STEPHANIE

Totally unique and fun experience with a quality product for a souvenir.

HEIDI

This was a great way to spend an afternoon. Jake was very welcoming and watching the laser cutter at work was really cool!

"I just received my wallet and keychain. Absolutely STUNNING!! Thank you so much!! I won't purchase any other wallet but Woolly ever again."

Yuri N.

"Woolly Made products are worth every penny. I appreciate the high quality craftsmanship that goes into every wallet I own from you guys!"

Erika P.

"I've had the half wallet since April and absolutely love it. I've tried several so-called "minimalist" wallets over the years and they've all failed me. Your product has been the only one that combines bespoke leatherwork with a simple, slim design. One of your keychains is next on my list to buy."

Josh T.

"I bought my first wallet from you several years ago and I have since bought a few other wallets and accessories to share as gifts. Everyone has loved them!"
