Like most folks with a predilection toward the exquisitely handmade, we tend to lament (loudly, after a few drinks) the general lack of DIY know-how these days.

Hang out at Readyluck Studios and sip cocktails from Baltimore area artisanal hotspot RYE next Thursday, September 19 while learning to make your own hand-bound leather notebooks. Put another way: get tipsy enough to complain about the state of handmade arts, while picking up the skills to prove yourself wrong. We know, we know— we can’t believe how cool it is, either.
