Roxie and Beamer Hodge of Deakin Handmade Wares are a husband-and-wife team with backgrounds in carpentry, art & sculpture and specialty coffee and have grown Deakin out of a longstanding appreciation for function-driven, timeless goods. What all began as a weekly craft night for friends in their tiny Pasadena studio has become a full-blown carry goods operation - providing heirloom-quality wallets, aprons, bags and small accessories to individuals and small boutiques since 2012. They have worked with companies like Intelligentsia Coffee, Handsome Coffee Roasters and Yeah! Furniture, creating co-branded products and doing leather craft workshops all over Los Angeles.
In their Father's Day workshop at Makers Mess, participants will make a wallet that will last a lifetime and improve with age. They'll do everything from cutting, assembling, stitching and edge finishing and leave with an amazing piece that is tough as nails and damn good lookin' :)
