This full-day workshop is a little more intensive and participants have the option of creating a larger, and more complicated, piece than in the half-day workshop. Participants will learn about tools and materials used in leathercraft including pattern making, pyrography (branding), carving, dyeing, finishing, hand-sewing and adding basic hardware. Participants will have their choice of project including several small bag/clutch patterns from our original patterns. Each participant will go home with a finished project.
