Leathercraft

Ages 12-16
Develop leather working skills and take home your creative projects

Crafting things from leather is one of the oldest human technologies and it is still used today by people all over the world. Objects you craft out of leather are beautiful, durable, and practical. And the possibilities of what you can create are almost endless. During Leathercraft camp students will be introduced to basic leatherworking skills and techniques. You will learn to design and conceptualize a project from start to finish. Students will be involved in laying out patterns, cutting leather, punching holes and stitching, finishing edges, and adding decorative touches to finished products. Each student will have the opportunity to take home one or more finished projects. But more than that, you will come away feeling more confident in your ability to practice this ancient skill to create whatever you want in the future.
