OPEN TABLE
Are you stuck on where to go with your leather project, not sure how to use a tool you need, or just need a space to make some noise? This weekend we will have an open table for you to utilize for working on your personal projects, and any of our employees on staff this day can answer any questions you may have about a step in your process you may be stuck with, as well as demonstrate the use of tools you’re on the fence about. You will be allowed to use any supplies we have available within our class drawer, but it’s suggested you bring all your own tools and supplies for convenience, this is open door and all ages.

BASICS OF UNDERSTANDING TOOLING
This is not a formal basics class – this is an informal instructional class that will be supervised by spencer, the manager of Beaverton Tandy leather. She will run over the concepts on how to use a swivel knife as well as beveling your cuts with a beveller tool, and you’ll be allowed to explore using the tools on your own to get a handle for it yourself. This is a great class for anyone who doesn’t need strict instructions from a teacher or doesn’t have the time to take a proper class, if you’re the kind of learner who just wants to sit down and learn on their own with the freedom to ask questions then this class is for you! Ages 14+ and beginners or the inexperienced are welcome.  Class time is open as this is not a formal class. 
 
JANUARY 12TH    
11:00am – 3:00pm

BELT MAKING CLASS
One of the best, most useful beginning projects to make for the novice leatherworker who knows their basics is a belt. Instructor spencer will guide you step by step through how to know where to punch your belt holes for a good fit, how to attach your buckle, skiving, and the hardware you’ll want to use. There will be minimal dying and customizing in this class, as we plan to only cover the basics. Tools and leather will be supplied, but feel free to bring your own supplies – such as a strap you’ve tooled, dyed, and now wish to transform into a belt, hole punches, or a favorite buckle that’s no bigger than 1 ½ “. Class time is flexible depending on the speed of the attendees and could end before the stated time.
