In this beginner level leatherworking class, learn to make your own leather zipper pouch perfect to house your makeup, art supplies, or whatever you can throw in there! 

This is a great skill building class, and you will come away with the knowledge to start your own leather projects confidently at home. 

Learn to:

* make a box bottom bag pattern that you can easily modify to any size, even a tote bag!

*trace and cut the pattern from leather.  I will have a selection of colors for you to choose from 

*learn about different types of leather glue and when to use them

*punch holes for hand stitching 

*hand sew with the saddle stitch

*hand sew in a zipper

*basic bag construction 

We will also cover leather care and what leathers are best for various projects.  

Inspired by the beautiful leatherwork from Mexico, many 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! See more @tiltleather
