Take your leatherworking skills further in this follow-up to my Beginning Leatherworking Class. In this second class, we'll continue working with chrome tanned leather, and build on the basic techniques we've already mastered to create a simple leather bag. Learn how to create patterns for basic leather accessories and then practice punching, gluing, sewing attaching buckles, clasps, and more as you complete your own custom leather design!
Humans have been using leather for thousands of years to create all kinds of practical and decorative objects. The process of creating leather is a fascinating synthesis between nature and technology, and leather itself is an incredibly versatile material. Working with leather is often considered a specialized skill, but it doesn't have to be! Leatherwork may seem intimidating, but as you will see, it is actually surprisingly easy if you have the right tools.
