Have you ever wanted to make your own backpack big enough for a full on backpacking trip?  This full weekend project will get you deep into the art of leatherworking.

With leather you can make beautiful, functional pieces of gear that will last for years.  You’ll learn how to design a piece, various stitching patterns, and the basics of leatherworking that you can apply to any future project you choose.

Please bring $60 the day of class for a materials fee.

Come make something useful, learn some new skills, and enjoy like minded company.
