Tools and leather will be supplied, but feel free to bring your own supplies – such as a strap you’ve tooled, dyed, and now wish to transform into a belt, hole punches, or a favorite buckle that’s no bigger than 1 ½ “.

Basic Tooling

10 AM – 1 PM

RETAIL: $10.00 WHOLESALE: $5.00

Tandy Leather Customers, your pleas have been heard! The long-awaited tooling class has finally arrived! For those interested, we will be going over the Basic Seven Tool Sets and how to work each, individual handstamp.

 

  • To be qualified to attend our classes, students are required to sign up for their desired classes one week in advance so we may gather the appropriate materials. Those who do not comply to this requirement will unfortunately be denied enrollment in the class for that day unless there is a cancelation from a student who previously signed up.

 

 

  • Effective immediately, we here at Tandy Leather 109 will be incorporating an open table policy on Mondays from the hours of 10 am – 4 pm. This is strictly a first come, first serve scenario. We here at Tandy pride ourselves on being the ones to teach leatherwork, so allow us to teach you. This time is merely for learning fundamentals, concept making, or drafting ideas. We will coach you in your project, but not do the work for you. Prices will be discussed at the time of the project being presented, as well as cost of materials.

 

  • Disclaimer: With our classes, we focus on teaching the fundamentals you need to go on your own and come up with your own unique designs, and concepts. We are flexible in modifying some aspects of the weekly class project such as dye variations and tooling patterns, but not to the point of it becoming a totally different project. The reason for this is to avoid confusion for less experienced students when building their projects. An old proverb once declared, “Focus on the hunt, not the horizon”, so please keep that in mind when doing our classes. For both our convenience and yours.
