Join this class to learn the dos and don'ts of leatherworking for beginners!
Leather Work 101 is a solid introduction to leather work. There are 4 projects to choose from and a variety of leathers and hardware. You can modify and create your own patterns as well.
This is a fun, easy class and gives you a chance to make a few things out of leather like a cuff, a clutch or a belt you can give as gifts or just wear and enjoy yourself. Set a snap, attach a rivet, install eyelets. All materials, hardware and use of tools are included in the tuition.

The Chicago School of Shoemaking
The Premier ShoeMaking Institute in Chicago
We are dedicated to teaching the art of hand-making shoes and leather goods to promote self-sufficiency and sustainability. Our goal is to empower all people to enjoy a satisfying and liberating experience around creating footwear and leather work.
"Buy a pair of shoes and you cover your feet for a year or two. Learn how to make shoes and you can shoe yourself, family and friends for a lifetime." :))
We use non-toxic glue while assembling the shoe uppers and shoemaking cement to attach the outer sole. We have an exhaust hood to limit exposure to any chemicals.
