Employees cannot teach you how to put your project together on these days, but we are available for simple questions such as how to set a piece of hardware, or a very quick explanation on how to use a certain tool. Open table days are not class days, they are a free day for you to work undisturbed. If you would like pictures of your projects to be taken and posted on our Facebook page for customer appreciation, today is the day to do it!
 
 
DOG COLLAR & LEASH CLASS Sat 9/21 Class Time: 11:00am – 3:00pm Ages 14+ COST: $50
In this class our special guest instructor Jeff will be showing you how to make a custom dog collar and leash for that favorite furry friend of yours. We will be working out of Tandy's dog collar kit for the collar, while the leash will be entirely cut and handmade using Tandy's newest addition to it's industrial machines the Rotary Strap Cutter. Jeff will also be showing you how to dye and stamp your collar and leash to truly make it a one of a kind that will last you for years to come. We ask that you know your pet's neck measurements before attending class - simply take a piece of string and comfortably hold it around your pet's neck like you would like to tie a cute little bow necklace with at least two fingers width between their neck and the string, and then measure that against a ruler to get an approximation. You may also measure their current collar if they have one! Beginners are welcome but it would benefit you to be somewhat familiar with working with leather. Cost of class includes the collar, leash, and supplies that will be used to customize the pieces, you are welcome to bring your own stamps or dyes if you have any! Class time may vary depending on the speed of attendees.

Jerez, ES #311 Leathercraft Classes
24/08/2019: curso con docente invitado: Texturas Caseras en Cuero con Pepe Pereira:
Cada año a final de curso en la Escola de Artes e Oficios de Vigo, en la que imparto la especialidad de Artesanía en Coiro, realizamos una exposición para la que los alumnos trabajan bajo una idea, en el año 2014 la idea era “Novos Produtos” y desde nuestro taller trabajamos desde el enfoque “nuevos productos, viejos conocidos”, la idea sobre la que estuvimos experimentando era trabajar el cuero con elementos con los que nos encontramos a nuestro alrededor día a día. Jugamos con tenedores, lijas, cucharas, antideslizante…….
Y a partir de ese momento y aumentando nuestros conocimientos con lo que nuestros amigos iban aportando fuimos ampliando una parte de la programación didáctica bajo el nombre de “Texturas Caseras”.
El planteamiento que damos a esta técnica es de experimentación y juego ya que no es una técnica dogmatica y permite innovar y desarrollar nuevos métodos.
 
duración: 10-14h
plazas: 15 alumnos max.
coste: 10€ por persona, a pagar con la inscripción y no reintegrable.
