Join BED|STU + AHA! on August 24 at the Guilded Table (120 Santa Barbara St.) for a fun night of shopping, wine and yummy treats! Twenty percent of proceeds from the evening will be donated to AHA!, a local Santa Barbara educational program promoting social emotional learning and peace building through creative expression.
AHA! has a focused mission of inspiring teens and adults to work together as courageous and kind leaders in the community. Various programs, including after school and summer programs, involve teaching participants about nutrition and healthy living, conflict management, violence prevention, public speaking skills and much more!
Purchases made at this event will benefit AHA! and customers can walk away with stylish pieces that will last a lifetime. BED|STU creates products that honor the craftsman and their work. They are in opposition of mass production techniques, working to create products that are made to last. Their pieces are made utilizing techniques such as hand weaving and hand stitching, and all of the leather is washed and tumbled for softness. The leather is all natural, vegetable tanned and hand finished. Any dyed products use pigment-free natural dyes derived from plants and soil, which are applied by hand.
Attendees can enjoy the eclectic atmosphere at The Guilded Table, a unique public space and marketplace in the Funk Zone. Here you will find handcrafted goods from local artists, including art, apparel, home goods, etc., as well as fantastic wine from Fox Wine Co. This area also serves as a great space to listen to live music and join in on workshops hosted by local artists. The Guilded Table is located right next to Topa Topa Brewing Co., The Nook and Lama Dog Tap Room and Bottle Shop. Come check out this event and explore what other things this Funk Zone gem has to offer!
