White Bear Center For The Arts
Hand Sewing Leather 201 - Tote bag and Laptop Case

Wednesday, February 27th, 10am to 4pm

This advanced leather-working class will build on your sewing skills, allowing students to create a larger, more complex project. Focus will be on refining your hand-sewing technique for speed and accuracy as well as problem solving during the construction process

Students will work from custom patterns while being guided through the basics of leather design and construction - including the skills necessary to design their own goods.

Project options include a tote bag ($60 material fee), cross body purse ($60 material fee), 13" laptop case ($40 material fee) or 15" laptop case ($40 material fee). You will be required to choose your project at signup but a variety of leather choices for each project will be available at the beginning of class.

Previous hand-sewing (saddle stitch) experience is strongly recommended. While the basics will be covered, the more experience you have, the happier you will be with you finished project.

Tuition: $63 Members / $81 Non-members
Material Fee: $40-$60 depending on the project, payable to Merchant Leather
