Get Started Workshop – Skills

Moxie and Oliver

If you’re curious about leatherwork and want to take a class to see if this is the art form for you, or if you’re just starting out and only need a little extra instruction, our four-hour Get Started Workshop is a great fit.

During this half-day workshop students will learn about vegetable tanned leather and the unique properties that allow color and pattern to be added permanently. Students will cut out, punch, brand, paint, dye, stitch and assemble a small project during the course of a class to explore different techniques. All tools and materials provided and participants will go home with a finished piece.

Registrations for classes cannot be cancelled once made. If you cannot
make your class time you can reschedule at no cost up to two (2) weeks
prior to the class. Rescheduling fewer than 14 days to your scheduled
class, cancelling, or not showing up to the class will result in full
forfeiture of your class fee. In the rare event that a class is cancelled
due to instructor illness or inclement weather, a make-up class will be
scheduled or students may transfer their registration to another scheduled
class with available space. Class registration fees are non-refundable.
