August 13 and December 17
10:00 AM-4:00 PM
You will have time to make a leather shoulder bag of your choice complete with adjustable strap and tassel (the bag project is recommended for first time students) or choose any project from the following: Leather belt, passport wallet, journal, phone pouch with braided strap, drawstring pouch, and a clutch purse big enough for a phone and wallet, etc. Depending on the project you chose you may even have time to make another one. You will be able to learn techniques of cutting leather and stitching styles. If desired, you can learn how to use a wood burning tool to inscribe a design directly on to the leather and then colorize it. All leathers, materials, tools, and instructions are provided, along with templates. No artistic ability is necessary, nor is any previous leather working experience. You do not need to bring anything except lunch, enthusiasm, and your desire to make something beautiful! Be sure to indicate which project you want to work on when you register.
