    Class Name: Leather Working for Beginners: Leather Possibles Pouch

    Class Description: “This workshop introduces students to the art of leather working. Students will learn about various tools and supplies, safety, and the skills of cutting, punching, beveling, grooving/layout, stitching, and, if time allows, stamping. By the end of the class you will have a beautiful, leather pouch to take home. In pioneer days, this type of pouch was carried by settlers and trappers to hold everything that could possibly be needed for the day such as black powder, flint and steel, lead balls, and personal items.  Wet forming of leather will be demonstrated. Students will be provided the pre-formed element required for the pouch/purse project. If time permits, students may also make a business card holder.”

    Instructor: Kevin Yarbrough is a software engineer with a local aerospace company with a passion for traditional trades: tooling and process. Kevin has been a volunteer at Burritt Museum demonstrating blacksmithing and leather working. His goals are to make useful, aesthetically pleasing items while learning and sharing in a collaborative environment.

    Supplies and Attire: All materials and supplies will be provided. Please wear comfortable clothes that it will not concern you if they get dirty. Students should have a basic aptitude for sewing and desire to learn. There will be an hour long lunch break from 12:00p-1:00p. Bring your own lunch or order below.
