TOM SLAVICEK - LEATHER I & II
You will have time to make up to 5 to 7 projects depending on size and complexity. Choices for your projects can be from the following: Make a leather shoulder bag or two, learn how to use a wood burning tool to inscribe a design onto the leather and then colorize it, depending on time make a small backpack, a couple of leather belts, wallets, passport wallet, journal, bracelets (with magic braid), belt pouch for your phone, instrument strap, lady’s wallet, clutch purse, and more. All leathers, materials, tools, and instructions are provided, along with templates. If you have an idea for a leather project you can bring it and can make it real. As time allows you can learn how to make tassels and fringe to add to your projects. No artistic ability is necessary, nor is any previous leather working experience. The class typically runs from Sunday evening and concludes on Friday by noon. You do not need to bring anything except your enthusiasm, and your desire to make something beautiful!
Tom earned his Leatherworking and Indian Lore Merit Badges when he was a Boy Scout on his way to eventually becoming an Eagle Scout. Both Merit Badges have remained life-long hobbies of his.
