Easy and fun Intro class - no leather crafting experience necessary. This class introduces you to the basic techniques of bag construction, stitching, decoration and some use of the wood burning tool. You will make a "standard sized" bag which has been pre-cut and pre-punched for you. You will choose colors and types of leathers you want for the bag, stitch it, and decorate it.
The cost for this one day workshop is $125.00 per person. Class is limited to 8 students. Continental breakfast and lunch is included. Supplies will be an additional $45.00, to be paid to the instructor on the first day of class.
