Leathercraft Handbag Workshop

handbag Moxie and Oliver

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

A stunning leather-crafted handbag for yourself or an incredible gift for someone special. Also, with these skills, you could consider starting your own handmade business.

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.
