Create your very own hand-crafted leather shoulder bag in this two day workshop! This fun and engaging workshop is a great introduction to a huge variety of skills like stamping, dyeing, carving and branding leather, installing hand-hammered copper rivets, making and installing wood or antler buttons, and installing buckles and clasps. You'll not only emerge with a completed and highly-functional shoulder bag, but also with the skills necessary to tackle loads of leather-craft projects like knife/axe/saw sheaths, belts, bags, wallets and more! Workshop participants will construct their bag using soft-tanned moose or deer buckskin. The bags feature a stiff, vegetable-tanned leather strap and are held closed with a wood or antler button (or buckles if you prefer). These bags are made to be used and made to last!
