Course Overview

Two things that many of us can expect during the holidays are traveling and gifting! In this class, we will learn the basics of hand-stitching leather and will make a number of leather goods that are perfect for travel or making for gifts (or keeping for ourselves!). We will make a Dopp kit, simple leather clutch, Mason jar koozie, and leather journal. Each student will leave with patterns to make more, some basic tools to continue leatherworking, and the option to buy smaller pieces of leather, so you don’t need to invest in an entire hide to begin. Customizations and additional projects can be discussed. Youth age 16+ may register for this course.
