Also if necessary, we can continue the class over to Sunday, 7/22/18, to complete your project. This class is $50.  There will be a 3 person minimum and a 6 person maximum. Call to reserve your spot.

Scrap Leather Micro Projects

Instructor:  Stephanie

Ages 15+

Cost:  $5.00 – Due Prior To The Start Of Class

 

Like most leatherworkers, you probably have a stash of scrap leather somewhere that you just can’t bring yourself to throw out.  But you also probably don’t have a specific plan for any of it?  Well, this class is for you!  Stephanie has come up with some simple but useful small projects specifically designed to utilize that scrap leather.  Project techniques will include setting snaps, rivets and hand stitching.  All of which you can learn in-depth in our other Free Basic Leatherworking Classes, although she’ll also give simplified instructions in this class as well. 

 

The cost of this class covers all necessary materials to complete the projects.  Any additional embellishments, such as decorative hardware, dyes or paints, will be an additional cost.

 

Call or come by before Wednesday 8/1/18 to reserve your space!  Space is available on a first come first served basis.

The Basics of Tooling & Carving Leather

Instructor:  Jaimi

Ages 14+

Cost:  FREE

 

Have you been wondering how exactly those Leathersmiths carve those beautiful patterns into leather?  Well, wonder no more, this class is for you!  We anticipate this class will run longer than our other basic courses as we’ll be teaching you the foundational skills and tools necessary to carve in the Western Sheridan Style.  Whether you like the Sheridan carving style or not, this class provides the fundamentals you’ll need to continue with the Western tradition or branch off into your own style.  We’ll be going over the Basic Seven Tools which are the Swivel Knife, Beveler, Backgrounder, Pear Shader, Camouflager, Seeder and Veiner.  We’ll also go over Casing leather, the process of preparing your leather to carve, as well as stropping your Swivel Knife to keep the blade in top working order.  Once completed, you’ll have a small sample flower carved into leather and the know-how to continue on your own!  (Although we’re always here to help you further!)

 

Suggested Tools:  We will provide these if you don’t have them, or you can buy your own before class
