Studio: Flex Space
Level: Beginner to Intermediate
Instructor: Shana Brumfield
Audience: Makers 14 years old & over*
Have you wanted to try leather working but didn't know where to start?
This class is an introduction to the basics, 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 designing, making, and decorating
medieval-style leather arm bracers using basic hand tools.
This class will be broken into two parts with a lunch break (lunch is NOT provided).
Morning: We'll cover cutting leather from a pattern, hole punching,
finishing edges, hand tooling designs and dyeing.
Afternoon: After giving the dye time to dry we'll pick up with
painting the design, sealing the leather, rivet setting, hand sewing
and final assembly.
If you have an idea of what design you'd like to put on your project,
remember that the space will be smaller than your forearm and should
be a fairly simple line drawing. Examples and alphabets will be
available if you choose to use something supplied during the workshop.
This is a great making experience if you're starting out or curious
about leather working.
We will supply you with hand tools, accessories, and leather! Just
bring yourself, curiosity and creativity!
