Choose two types of patterns: an open-side wallet with a liner or a closed edge wallet with a cash pocket. You’ll be shown how to trace your pattern onto leather, cut it out, punch your stitching holes, as well as a few tips on how to design the inside pockets of your wallet to lay slim. Ages 14+, it’s recommended you have taken the basics of stitching or have at least a rudimentary knowledge on stitching, and also recommended you know how to have a great time!

November 11th  
10:00am – 3:00pm
Basics of Wet Molding

COST - $5

One vital technique to have in your arsenal when working with leather is that of wet molding – forming leather to a tight shape that fits whatever it is you’re making it to fit. Think leather gun holsters, or perfectly snug leather card cases that look as if they were vacuum formed to the object in question. Employee Braden will guide you through tips and techniques regarding the finesse of wet molding your projects, and by the end of this basics class you’ll have the knowledge needed to start making more seamless, professional looking leather artwork. This is a basics class, so no prior experience in wet molding is necessary, however we do request that you be familiar with leatherworking already so that it’s easier for you to follow along. Ages 14+, class time is flexible based on the speed of the attendees, if class goes over the 1 o’clock mark a lunch break will be allotted.

 

November 18st

Bracers are one of the most basic yet fancy leather armor pieces to make, and let professional designer Matt Gauthier guide you through the process on how to make a very basic cuff that utilizes swing clasps as the closure. In this class, you will also be learning how to set hardware, dye leather, and lay out a pattern. You will be making one cuff. Recommended for those who have some experience with leatherworking already – setting hardware in particular- though those who like a challenge are welcome to sign up!
