Basic Leatherworking for Kids
Sewing leather to make useful things is a great way to get started in traditional craft. Using cowhide, students will learn how to stitch a leather drawstring pouch, and design a leather keychain or backpack toggle. This course will cover hand stitching techniques and varieties of leather, as well as leather embellishing techniques. Students will leave with a leather drawstring pouch, leather keychain, and a new interest in making things by hand.
