We are overwhelmed with how much fun we’ve been having this year, and the 2 before, for that matter. We’ve created worlds where adventure, beauty, and knowledge reign- worlds where adults and kiddos come together and make stuff, teach stuff, and come back together again and again. We would like to say THANK YOU- and we LOVE YOU all.

We’ll be taking a month off here at LDBA- heading out on a road trip to the Southwest, and gathering inspiration with every mile. In the meantime, sign up for our next round of classes happening in mid- February- Indigo Dyeing and Bows and Arrows! Both classes are happening on Saturday, February 21st at our NEW STUDIO in Williamsburg- (240 Division Ave. at Marcy Ave. Brooklyn, NY 11211).
We’ve pulled a few of our favorite photos from the last few years for you to browse- we are so looking forward to 2015- and we hope to see you all in the NEW YEAR!

We love the Autumn here at LDBA- Layers, cozy games and conversation with friends. (It also happens to be my Birthday month!) Hope you all are settling into the cooler weather and shorter days surrounded by warmth, creativity and inspiring people.
Stay tuned for upcoming classes and workshops for December- we’re working on a few!


More classes coming soon!
