Small Project Workshop - Leathercraft
Learn how to create Smartphone Cases, Watch Belts, and other small items through Leathercrafting. This four-hour workshop is ideal for anyone who has a small item they would like to make out of leather, and needs a little help to get started. Participants will have the option of creating a smartphone case, cuff/watch, belt, small wallet, guitar strap or flask. All tools and materials provided and participants will go home with a finished piece. Classes are four hours long and are plenty of time for students to create a small piece, learn some new skills, and develop a new crafting hobby! Classes are small (maximum of six people) and are held in our North Seattle studio.
I'm a full-time leathercraft artist, mother, and author of "Leathercrafted." I'm a certified leathercraft master. I started Moxie & Oliver in 2014 out of a desire to create leather accessories that were as durable as they were beautiful. After eleven years making leather goods, and with the original pieces still in use (and looking amazing), I have accomplished that and so much more. Teaching leathercraft classes out of my studio allows me to share my love of the craft, my knowledge of the process and history, and my original techniques for adding pattern and color, with interested students. Classes are open to anyone age 12 and older. My unique process allows anyone, artistic background or not, to be able to create a beautiful, functional, leather good in an afternoon, a day or a weekend. Come with an open mind and a rough idea of what you'd like to accomplish - with your inspiration and my guidance, YOU will make something wonderful!
