Make your own customer leather good
This entry level class is designed to introduce the classic techniques of hand-sewing with leather. Students are able to choose from projects that demonstrate the basics of working with leather including cutting, punching, hand-sewing, riveting, snap setting, finishing and care.
Students will be guided through the process from hide to finished product – leaving the class with their very own handmade leather good.
Students will be able to choose from a wide assortment of projects and leather at the beginning of class, including: Clutches, belts, coin purses, wallets, Fieldnote covers, phone cases, key-chains, sunglass cases and more (see photos for examples).
No previous experience with any type of craft or sewing is required.
The class will be held in the Maker Room at the Minnesota Makers market in Robbinsdale, MN. Check out the Minnesota Makers store and other classes at www.minnesotamakers.net
