WKS804: Leatherworking Basics - Make a Leather Wallet

I love the smell of laser burnt leather in the morning! How many times have you said that? Not many ... but how many times have you hunted for the ideal wallet? Too many!

In this workshop, you will learn how to design patterns and artwork on the computer, then cut your patterns and carve your artwork into leather with a laser. You will also learn leather sewing techniques and apply them to assemble your highly personalized wallet!

Please note: Workshops utilize TechShop’s equipment; all shop rules apply – unless you have passed our required safety courses (SBU's) your instructor will assist you on the equipment. This is not an SBU workshop – you must pass the appropriate Safety and Basic Use class to use TechShop's equipment unattended.
