Harrisburg, PA #03 Leathercraft Classes

Every Day  (Excluding Store Events and Scheduled Classes)  -  Staff Available from 11am – 4pm

Open Table (Come Work In Our Store):   Are you stuck on a project?  Just have some questions on how to use a tool or get an effect on leather?  Looking for a little guidance as to how to proceed with your project, pattern or idea?  This Open Table is for you!  During the hours of 11am – 4pm our highly skilled and knowledgeable Staff will be available to answer questions, offer guidance, provide honest critiques (with no judgment), or generally help nudge you towards the even better Leathercrafter that we see in you!   Bring your project in and work at our tables during these hours.  While we can’t do the work for you, we are very excited to help guide you on that stubborn project.  Space is limited, though no reservations are needed.    
All Ages Welcome.   Cost:  FREE


Saturday 4/13/19 - 11:00AM – 4:00PM (Length of class will vary – We’ll break for lunch)

The Basics of Leather Liquids - Dyeing, Finishing & Leather Care Products:  There are a lot of liquids to treat your leather with, from alcohol and water-based dyes, to stains, soaps, conditioners, waterproofs and finishes.  And believe it or not, not all applicators are the same!  In this class we’ll go over the basics and then do some test leather treating which will help you choose what products will work best for your project and when/how to use them.  Hopefully we won’t be getting too messy, but it is recommended that you at least wear clothes you don’t mind getting permanently dyed, just in case.  We look forward to seeing you in class.

For this class, because of the potential for making a mess, space is limited and must be reserved in advance.  Call the store to have your name added to the list and claim your spot.  Our classes have been filling up quickly, but rest assured we’ll be cycling through these basic classes regularly.  If you don’t make it this time, don’t worry, it will be repeated throughout the year.
Ages 14+    Cost:  FREE


Suggested Tools:  We will provide these if you don’t have them, or you can buy your own before class

Latex Gloves
Daubers, Paint Brushes, Dye Sponge, Applicators, etc
Clothes you don’t mind getting permanently stained or dyed - Shirt and Pants (Not Provided)

Space is limited and must be reserved on a first come, first served basis.  Call the store to have your name and number added to the list which will reserve your spot.  Seat priority will be given to those on the list who are present at the start of the class.

Saturday 4/27/19 – 11:00am – 4:00pm  (Length of class will vary – We’ll break for lunch)

Drop Leg Utility Pouch and Belt (In the style of Han Solo):  Calling all Nerds, Star Wars Fans and those of you that just want a cool new way to carry your awesome stuff!  In his first class teaching in store, Tito will guide you through making his custom Drop Leg Pouch and Utility Belt.  Designed to wear over your pants and belt loops like a holster rig, this will attach around your leg and stay securely in place.  Tito personally designed it in the style of Han Solo’s Belt, but using only Tandy products it will vary and be much more unique.  As a bonus, though we will be making the Pouch and Utility Belt in this class, Tito’s design allows for the pouch to be removed and other accessories to be made and attached in its place.  (Tito’s currently working on a holster for his favorite Light Saber, but that may come another time).  We expect to be able to complete the whole rig in one day, but you also have the option of taking it home and customizing it further.  As always, class attendees will enjoy a special discount on purchases made the day of class, (some restrictions apply), and we will be available to help in any way we can either before or after class.  

A sample of this project is available in store.  Come on by and check out it!  It’s a very cool design with lots of options for customization.

Skill Level:  Beginner - Intermediate: Those with a basic understanding of cutting, punching and dyeing leather will do well in this class.  If you've never worked with leather or are still new to it, we still encourage you to come!  Just let us know in advance of the class what your experience level is and we'll tailor your class experience to your skill set.
Ages 16+

For those wanting to attend this class, deposits are due in advance with the balance paid at the start of class.  We will reserve space based on receipt of deposit on a first come first paid basis.
