Working with leather can be fun and creative with endless possibilities. Tooling (or carving) is a leatherworking skill that allows you to decorate and customize your leather projects. Although there are many different styles and directions someone can go with tooling, there are basic tools and fundamentals that are common among them all.

In this hands-on class you will begin to learn the fundamentals of tools including

  • Swivel knife
  • Bevels
  • Shaders
  • Backgrounders 
  • And other detail tools

Whether you have some tooling experience already or you have never touched a tool, this class is for you.

Fundamentals are important at any stage of the game. They are important to help you start on a firm foundation to grow your leathercraft skills. This class format allows me to teach to different skill levels with lots of one-on-one time.

Bring what tools you have but if you are just starting and do not have any, there will be
tools for you to use during class.

    You are encouraged to take lots of notes and pictures as needed. There are LIMITED SPOTS AVAILABLE to provide maximum one on one time and allow for all questions to be answered in depth.
