I taught an Intro to Leatherwork class!
For the past few weeks I have been teaching my very first continued Intro to Leather working course! Over the past year I have taught several three hour simple leather workshops, but this semester I had the opportunity to organize and plan a four session long course on introductory leather working techniques. Some of the skills I taught my class of 9 students were basic stitching, dyeing, conditioning, stamping, pattern making and wallet construction. I began the course by teaching a basic card wallet so that the students could practice the techniques, as I demonstrated them, on something that they would end up being able to use once completed. Then, I assisted each individual in the pattern making, testing and construction of a wallet ideation of their own.
