During this amazing two-day workshop, participants will design and create their own vegetable-tanned leather handbag. Our classes are small (four to six students) and held in our Broadview area working leathercraft studio. 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 on the second day.
Who This Class is For
No prior experience is necessary, and each student will learn the basics of leathercraft including pattern making and design.
What You Will Learn
Participants will learn about tools and materials used in leathercraft including pattern making, pyrography (branding), carving, dyeing, finishing, hand-sewing, tooling, and adding basic hardware.
What You Will Take Home

What You Need
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. Come ready to learn, and to become thoroughly addicted to your new hobby or business.
