In this leatherworking bootcamp, resident master of leather and Tilt Leather owner Jennifer Laursen will teach you how to create your own high-end, unisex, leather tote bag! The finished project is a leather tote measuring 13" x 11", with an inside pocket and keychain. It’s the perfect bag for keeping track of all of you doodads, whatsits, and thingamajigs!
You’ll build, sew, and rivet every part of this high end bag yourself. You'll learn to work with a pattern, how to cut out your bag from the hide, and how and when to use leather adhesives. You’ll also learn how to punch holes, hand stitching techniques, and how to create a box corner. Lastly, you'll cut your choice of straps and rivet them onto your bag. This class includes several hours of handwork and stitching, so a prior leather class or sewing class is always helpful, but not necessary. Bring those hands well rested and ready to work!
None. Please note that we are offering black, brown, and tan leather colorways for your bag. You will choose this color when buying your class ticket.
