Class Description

Advanced Leather Working

Take your leather hand-sewing skills up a notch and make a beautiful leather tote bag (two designs to choose from) or a drawstring bucket bag. Be guided through the process from hide to finished product.

Though not required, it is recommended that participants have taken a previous class or have equivalent experience.

The instructor is Dan Horan, the master mind behind Merchant Leather. He is a completely self-taught leatherworker with a style that incorporates traditional techniques along with trial and error. Merchant Leather strives to pass the tradition of working with leather on to others.
