Learn how to dye and hand stitch your own leather clutch in this beginners leatherworking class. Using high quality vegetable tanned leather, you will explore dying techniques using water based colors. You will also learn the “saddle stitch”, a very strong and durable hand stitch technique. You’ll come home with a beautiful handmade clutch, the knowledge on how to care for your leather products, and a basic understanding of leather working tools.*

* Students do not need to bring anything to class, but since we are using dyes, don’t wear your Sunday best! 

Inspired by the beautiful leatherwork from Mexico, 6 years ago I went on a quest to teach myself this time-honored tradition.  I devoured old manuals, youtube videos, and used the tried and true method of trial and error. Today I make handmade accessories for women, men and home, still learning and perfecting my craft everyday- and I love every minute of it!  Each piece is made solely by me in my studio in Vallejo Ca with lots of love, blood, sweat and tears (ok- not tears, but I do listen to the band a lot).  I also teach private lessons and group workshops to kids and adults,  I love watching others get hooked on leathercraft!
