Construct your own leather purse!

During this full-day workshop participants will design and create their own vegetable tanned leather purse. No prior experience is necessary. Students will start with a pre-cut piece of leather to personalize with their choice of pattern and color.  Students are encouraged to bring sketches and ideas of the design that they wish to put on the purse.  Students will learn about working with vegetable tanned leather and how to add pattern and color permanently to this unique material.  Students will hand-stitch their bags and set rivets for the straps, and go home with a completed piece.

The finished dimensions are 10" tall x 2.5" deep by 7" wide

Our classes are small (four to six students) and held in our Kenmore area working leathercraft studio. Come ready to learn, and to become thoroughly addicted to your new hobby! Come with questions, and leave with your very own handbag that you made yourself!
