In this class, we will learn the basic skills of leather working while sewing a classic 100% leather tote bag. Learn about cutting leather, preparing it for stitching, saddle-stitching and riveting handles. Leave with a beautiful market tote of your very own and the skills to do countless leather-working projects for a lifetime!
The tote measures approximately 16”x14” and is made out of brown oil-tanned cowhide. All materials will be prepared by the instructor before class, but each step of the preparations will be covered as a group.
Students are asked to bring:
- water, bag lunch and/or snacks
