It is an amazing workshop!! You get a great product with perfect quality and you can personalize it. The best "souvenir" to get. Jake is such a nice 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 story of how they got started with their craft and how it’s been evolving. I really enjoyed the hands on 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 living in (or traveling to) 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.
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.
Totally unique and fun experience with a quality product for a souvenir.
This was a great way to spend an afternoon. Jake was very welcoming and watching the laser cutter at work was really cool!
