Leather Gifts and Small Projects


Make a gift for a friend or for yourself in this two-hour small project/gift workshop. This is a great workshop for corporate team building, wedding or birthday parties, and everyone can choose their own project.

During this workshop, students will learn how to permanently add pattern and color to vegetable-tanned leather and will learn about how to assemble their project. No prior experience is necessary. Students will start with a pre-cut piece of leather to personalize with their choice of pattern and color. Students are encouraged to bring sketches and ideas of the design that they wish to put on the piece. Students will go home with a completed piece.

Our classes are small (four to six students) and held in our Kenmore area working leathercraft studio. Come ready to learn, and to become thoroughly addicted to your new hobby!
