San Bruno, CA #142 Leathercraft Classes

Hey leather enthusiast,

Imagine lounging around at home on your couch, sipping a steaming cup of hot coffee. It’s a cold, foggy day outside. But your relaxing in your “at-home” clothes, watching some classic movies. You get up to use the bathroom, but instead of slipping into some raggedy, old slippers, you pop on your own custom-made moccasins…

…Made by none other than yourself.

Normally, making footwear is a complicated job. But our instructor Adam Nelson is a seasoned leatherworker, and since his last moccasin making class was such a success, he’s made improvements to his lesson plan.

What’s this mean for you?

…A better lesson. And a better pair of moccasin’s.

Sound good? Here’s the details:

 

Day 1 – Saturday, October 1 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Day 1 is all about introduction to moccasin styles and getting measurements. You’ll measure your feet and transfer it to tracing paper, and you’ll be able to cut them out for the next class.

 

Day 2 – Saturday, October 8 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Day 2 is when you start working with leather. You’ll transfer the pattern over to leather and cut out some patterns (such as soles and tongues for your moccasin). All your pieces will be ready to be constructed in the next class.

 

Day 3 – Saturday, October 15 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Day 3 is when your moccasin comes together. You’ll start constructing it by stitching it up, and you’ll really get an idea of how your moccasin will end up looking.

 

Day 4 – Saturday, October 22 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Final day is all about final touches. You’ll glue all your moccasin segments together and leave with your custom-made moccasins this very day.

Interested?
