Leather Crafting Classes
Classes will take place in our Lancaster City Studio on North Queen Street
Here is a quick rundown of what a typical class will be like:
When you arrive for your class, you'll be greeted with a warm smile and a happy hello. Once the rest of the class has gathered (we have a maximum of seven guests) we will begin the class.
The class will have a specific structure. However, our style is fluid.
1) Introduction (10 mins)
A) We will start with introductions. We want everyone to feel comfortable, happy and that they are amongst friends.
B) Angela and I will give a quick synopsis of the business and its origins.
C) I will tell you about the tanning of leather. I am in the process of teaching myself to tan leather. We will go over what makes great leather, the history of tanning, and the current state of the industry.
2) Making (2+ hours)
A) Each person will have their own set of hand tools (you will be using sharp objects and you'll need to sign a waiver) and squares of leather. Leather crafting consists of three primary steps: Cutting, constructing and finishing.
B) You will receive step by step demonstration and instruction
C) Angela and I will be there throughout to answer all questions and to help with all things leather craft.
