Working with leather is a meditative artisanal quest for authenticity and quality. Learning this trade can offer a DIY solution to create many items of everyday use. Our Traditional Skills course is a beginning leathercraft class that offers hands-on step by step instruction on the use of leather tools, transferring carving patterns, simple carving, stamping, dyeing, stitching, and finishing. While this course is geared toward the beginner, those who have some experience with leatherwork will greatly benefit by honing their skills and adding advanced techniques. Students in the Traditional Skills course will use remnant leather to learn and perfect the techniques taught during the course. All of this skill-building will lead students to work on several projects including a final project of an envelope clutch, laptop sleeve, mason jar cozy, or minimalist wallet.
