Have you wanted to try leather working but didn't know where to start? This class is 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 we will be making small belt pouches from “veg-tanned” leather (similar to, but thinner than saddle leather) using basic hand tools. Skills will cover: cutting leather from a pattern, hole punching, rivet setting, hand sewing, dyeing, finishing edges, and hand tooling designs. Multiple pouch patterns are available to choose from and pouch size may vary from 5" to 7". These make great gifts for loved ones or for yourself.
You have the option to bring your own decorative button as a closure for your pouch (approximately 1") but we'll supply the rest.
This is a great making experience if you're starting out or curious about leatherworking.
We will supply you with hand tools, accessories, and leather! Just bring yourself, curiosity and creativity!
