Want to try leather working but afraid of the cost? Get an introduction to the basics of leatherworking, designed to give you a feel for the craft and an idea of what tools and skills you'll need to continue your experience. In this maker experience, you will take leather pieces to create a custom mason jar wrap with a handle. 

Great for makers getting started in leatherworking!

To learn with your stuff, you have the option to bring: 

  • Sturdy scissors, utility knife, or exacto knife

  • Metal ruler

  • Mason jar or bottle

We will supply you with the rest (hand tools, accessories, and leather). Come learn stuff, make stuff!

Instructor Bio: Shana Brumfield hails from New Orleans before moving to Winston-Salem. Shana got into leather working after joining the Society for Creative Anachronism (a medieval reenactment group) and realized she could make a lot of the accessories cheaper than she could buy them!  Shana has been working with leather for over 20 years and has made more than a few special order items. Shana is kindly offering this maker experience at MIXXER because she wants to share her love and extensive experience of this craft with others. This wonderful maker experience is an opportunity to try working with leather without spending a lot of money getting started! 

Workshops must meet a minimum number of registrations.  Mixxer may cancel workshop 48 hours prior to start time, if minimum is not met. Should you need to cancel your registration, 48 hours notice is required to request a cancellation, refund or credit to future workshop date.
