Wed 2/28, Leatherworking: Craft your own Belt, 6:30-9:30pm
Learn the art of leatherwork, just like at camp! In this workshop you will complete your own leather belt and come away with basic knowledge of the age old craft of leatherwork. You’ll learn how to dye and prepare your leather, measure and cut a strap, stamp a simple design (even personalize it with alphabet stamps!), and assemble your own belt! You can even wear it out of class!
