What:  SANDAL MAKING

Cost: $100.00 (cash only class)

To make sandals more comfortable, choose the right style or even just breaking them in could be very uneasy. With instructions, this class will help you design your own pattern specifically for your feet. Over the two-day class you will design and build one pair of sandals. First part of the class is all about the sandal design (1/2) day. The design process is very important to build skills in the construction of the sandal. Next there will be step-by-step instructions on making a good pair of custom sandals. If you are just starting leather crafting this would be a good class to get started with – you have built your skill over time, then this class is for you.

Sandals are incredibly diverse, so each student will receive a full sandal making presentation, complete set of cut out sandal patterns (Kids 8 through Adult 13) with my own strap template. Students will also get print outs on leather crafting skill building (types of leather, burnishing, and basic feet problems). Instructor’s contact information for further instructions as you continue to build your design skills, also a really nice pair of sandals.

A Tool list will be printed and given to Tandy so you can pick up a couple weeks prior to the class. There will also be instructions on how to measure your feet or if you are making a gift; their feet. All leather is included in the price of the class. Instructor will bring some dyes and tools for use.

Saturday Beginner Basics- April  21st

           The first three classes of the month take place on Saturdays at 11 a.m. and are free of charge. This sequence is geared towards getting you started on stamping, carving and dying. The first Saturday (April 7th,) we will be learning how to use the Tandy Craft Tools as well as using the swivel knife. We will be stamping out some geometrics, and using the swivel knife to score the leather. The second Saturday, (April 14th,) we will do a floral carving. This class focuses mainly on using the swivel knife and seven basic craft tools to create a 3D flower in leather. The third Saturday, (April 21st,) we bring the floral carving back to dye and finish it. We will work with the Eco Flo Waterstains to give the flower more dimension.

 

Basic and Decorative Hand stitching

Tuesday, April 17th

 Time 5 p.m.

class fee is $5.00.

we will be teaching basic hand stitching techniques such as the Saddle Stitch.

 

Thursday, April 19th 

Ttime 5 p.m.

class fee is $5.00.

we will focus more closely on decorative and unique stitching techniques.       

 

  

Basic Knife Sheath

Saturday, April 28th 

Time 11 a.m.  

Class fee is $40.

In this class we will be demonstrating how to make a pattern, as well as putting together a sheath for a knife with a 7” long blade. We please ask that you bring your own knife for this particular session. The type of sheath this class will focus on is the fold over sheath style. The fold over will have a strap so that you will be able to slide the sheath on and off a belt. We will be using 8-9oz vegetable tanned leather.  You may dye the sheath in the colors we have available. Once dyed we will wet mold the sheath to the knife itself, so that it may lock in place.  After the wet molding process we will then glue the two sides and welt together. We will then use a groover and an overstitcher to mark where the stitches will lay. Because this sheath requires sanding, (by hand, a belt sander or a Dremel,) you will have to finish that part at home. The rest we will take care of in the class.

Starting at 3pm we are hosting an open table session !! WOO HOO !! With the table space that we have available, this session is limited to 6 spots.

Instructor:  Jaimi
