Make Smith is excited to announce our new partnership with C.S. Osborne Tools to provide the highest quality tools to use during our workshops, and hopefully inspire future projects.
Make Smith is a 500 square foot traditional leather-crafting workshop located at 117 West De La Guerra St Unit C, Santa Barbara CA 93101 (map). Our goal is to provide the resources, education, and community for creative minds to make quality handcrafted leather goods. Our classes can enhance a growing career or satiate a long time desire to start a new skill in a small class format. We host a variety of classes in which students will make leather goods such as, a wallet, a belt, a bracelet, and much more. Our curriculum emphasizes DOING to learn, MAKING to be creative, and EMBRACING mistakes to gain experience. We empower our students to craft with their hands, become self sufficient and build confidence.
