Pride Month

Join us for Queer Social at the Victorian Pride Centre, where social chats with like-minded queer individuals blend seamlessly with engaging, creative workshops. Led by Laneway Learning and facilitated by talented queer instructors, these workshops are designed to spark inspiration and foster self-expression. 

Discover the art of Leathercraft! In this workshop, you’ll learn the fundamentals of leatherworking while creating your own unique and sustainable leather pouch.

Using 100% repurposed leather, you’ll be guided through all aspects of this project, from creating the initial pattern, to stitching and embellishing, to create your own one-of-a-kind leather pouch that reflects your personal style.

Leather is a very durable and useful material. There’s rarely a reason to throw leather away! Learning how to make a simple purse is a great step in realising the wider potential of repurposing leather to get the very most out of the long lifecycle of this material.
