Intro to Leather Work
Learn the ancient craft of hand-worked leather. The earliest known garments in human history were made by hand-lacing animal hides together. With very few changes through the centuries, this technique is still used today to make beautiful, sturdy, funtional garments and accessories. In this class, you'll learn the basics of selecting a hide, creating or selecting a sewing pattern, cutting the leather and the lacing, and construction of a small leather wallet you can take home with you and start using right away.
