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.”
