March 2019 Class List

Every Day  (Excluding Store Events and Scheduled Classes)  -  Staff Available from 11am – 4pm

Open Table (Come Work In Our Store):   Are you stuck on a project?  Just have some questions on how to use a tool or get an effect on leather?  Looking for a little guidance as to how to proceed with your project, pattern or idea?  This Open Table is for you!  During the hours of 11am – 4pm our highly skilled and knowledgeable Staff will be available to answer questions, offer guidance, provide honest critiques (with no judgment), or generally help nudge you towards the even better Leathercrafter that we see in you!   Bring your project in and work at our tables during these hours.  While we can’t do the work for you, we are very excited to help guide you on that stubborn project.  Space is limited, though no reservations are needed.   

All Ages Welcome.   Cost:  FREE

Saturday, 3/9/19 - 11:00AM – 4:00PM (Length of class will vary – We’ll break for lunch)

The Basics of Tooling & Carving Leather:  Have you been wondering how to 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!)  We’ll break for lunch, so feel free to bring some food or shop at the various local stores.

Ages 14+    Cost:  FREE
