Small Project Workshop - This four-hour workshop is ideal for anyone who has a small item they would like to make out of leather, and needs a little help to get started.  Participants will have the option of creating a smartphone case, cuff/watch, belt, small wallet or flask.  All tools and materials provided and participants will go home with a finished piece. ($175)

Intro to Leathercraft - This full-day workshop is a little more intensive and participants have the option of creating a larger, and more complicated, piece than in the half-day workshop. Participants will learn about tools and materials used in leathercraft including pattern making, pyrography (branding), carving, dyeing,  finishing, hand-sewing and adding basic hardware.  Participants will have their choice of project including several small bag/clutch patterns from our original patterns. Each participant will go home with a finished project. ($350)

Handbag Workshop - During this two-day workshop participants will design and create their own vegetable tanned leather handbag.  No prior experience is necessary, and each student will learn the basics of leathercraft including pattern making and design.  Students are encouraged to bring sketches and ideas, and I will walk them through the pattern making process in addition to teaching the skills of our Intro to Leathecraft class. ($750)
