December 6 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:30pm on Wednesday, repeating until December 13, 2017

This is an introductory class; Makers in this class will have the opportunity to make a cross body bag large enough to hold a cell phone and a few other items.
Makers will learn about:
-Cutting leather cleanly with as little waste as possible
-Gluing and various types of glues that are most effective for different types of project
-Using drive punches in project construction
-Learn 3 different types of stitches and when to use each
-Types of threads and when to use each

I have always created things, especially clothing and sculpture. As a young adult I made a living making leather and decorating leather clothing; I still do for costumes etc. I enjoy teaching and sharing my skills with others. I taught extensively to children and adults in my previous art studio in Arizona. My strongest skills are teaching, sewing; leather, garments, clothing and I most especially enjoy costuming.   
Ginny Lenoir is an artist who works in a variety of media. “By focusing on techniques and materials, I use visual vocabulary to inspire, delight and awe. My works are notable for their unique finish and tactile nature. This is of great importance and bears witness to my love of craftsmanship.”

The class is $50 plus $40 for materials

CLASS FULL, thank you!
