If you’ve got an interest in whiskey and leather, you’re in luck. The next event in the #BlackBushStories series will be hosted by Irish leatherworker Jason Karayiannis, in the form a hands-on workshop at Dublin’s Drury Buildings in Dublin on Wednesday August 29th.
Jason is the driving force behind Father’s Father, a Belfast-based business that produces handmade leather goods combining quality and utility, ranging from travel wallets to card holders and belts. Bartender and Bushmills Irish Whiskey Ambassador Paul Rocks will also be on hand – the interactive event will open with an educational session from Paul on some of Bushmills’ most-loved whiskeys and the history and heritage of the brand. Next up, an opportunity to hear about Jason’s story and take part in a leatherwork masterclass where each guest will make (and take home) their own initialled leather coaster and bookmark.
As part of the collaboration with Bushmills and the #BlackBushStories series, Jason has created a limited edition Bushmills x Father’s Father leather hip flask, fashioned from a single piece of full grain vegetable tanned leather. Ten of these unique flasks are available to win at blackbushstories.com.
This event is free to attend although spaces are limited to 50. Visit blackbushstories.com before August 24th to register for a place.
