Guest Hosting "An Intimate Instruction:" Lacing Workshop with Dark Garden

On Saturday, October 15th, I'll be happily hosting a lacing workshop at Dark Garden in San Francisco. This workshop is for both those learning to lace themselves, and those wishing to lace others. But why stop there? I'm happy to talk waist training, Pop Antique, and anything else corset-related.

Dark Garden has been running this workshop every few months all year (first Friday of every 3rd month). This event is a special addition to the lineup for two reasons: one, it's on a Saturday instead of a Friday, and two, I'm hosting! Dark Garden's proprietress Autumn Adamme is my mentor in corsetry, and I am honored to take the reins for this workshop.

So if you're in the Bay Area, I hope I'll see you there! The address is 321 Linden St., San Francisco, CA 94102 – easily accessible by BART and close to the freeway (although parking is tricky). The workshop starts at 5pm.
