Make a fabulous, unique, one-of-a-kind leather handbag!
During this two-day workshop participants will design and create their own vegetable tanned leather handbag. No prior experience is necessary, and each student will learn the basics of leathercraft including pattern making and design. Students are encouraged to bring sketches and ideas, and I will walk them through the pattern making process in addition to teaching the skills of our Intro to Leathecraft class.
Our classes are small (four to six students) and held in our Broadview area working leathercraft studio. Come ready to learn, and to become thoroughly addicted to your new hobby! Come with questions, and leave with your very own handbag that you made yourself!
Please note this is a TWO DAY class and two consecutive weekend days (Saturday and Sunday). Date listed is the first day of the class, and hours are the same in the second day.
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.
