This six-week course teaches the fundamentals of leatherworking while you make a belt and tote bag. Learn how to cut, bevel, crease and burnish edges, plus how to skive. Wet form leather around a buckle, and learn how to apply dyes and finishes to your belt. The tote project will introduce several different seam types and edge finishes appropriate for leather. You will be introduced to the many different kinds of leather, its qualities and potential and become proficient at using and maintaining leather hand tools.
Kit includes leather for samples, belt and buckle, handles for tote, stitching awl, linen thread, harness needles, edge finishing tools, plus dyes and finishes to use in-class. You will buy a small amount of light leather for the tote bag. You also will bring basic sewing supplies and bring, or rent, a home sewing machine for three classes.
Class limited to eight students. This class is designed for people with little or no previous experience, and for those who want to go back to the basics in working with leather.
