Leatherworking: final project: How to make a case (sleeve) for anything! Tablet, laptop, cellphone, journal, etc! Just bring in the item, measure and we’ll learn to make the pattern, cut the leather, tool the leather and finish!
We’ll build our leather skills by creating projects using snaps, rivets, cutting tools, staining, designing tools and sewing tools.
Because everyone works at their own pace, the weekly shedule is flexible. If learners finish early, there will alsways be extra projects they can work on.
