Hand-Sewn Leather Tote Bag

Course Overview

A beautiful and sturdy leather tote can last a lifetime. This class will introduce leatherworking skills and design techniques that may be applied to a variety of future projects. In this class, we will make a hand-stitched, leather tote–perfect for toting a laptop or several books. The finished bag will measure approximately 18"x12" in size. Customization can be discussed, and additional pockets or strap enhancements can be considered for an additional materials fee. This class is ideal for beginners, but requires good hand strength. Youth ages 13-15 are welcome to participate with an adult; students ages 16+ are welcome to attend on their own.
