In this workshop, we’ll learn how to make two Italian leather keychains with brass hardware. You get to choose your design from 4 different options, and I will show you how to cut, crease, burnish, and rivet this beautiful high-end leather into pretty keychains. Keep one for yourself and gift the other one! The leather we will be using smells amazing and makes for a great intro to the craft of leather making. The class includes an overview of the craft and some interesting show and tell pieces.
A few years back on a whim, I signed up for a leather craft class. I was instantly hooked! Since then, I’ve studied with master artisans here and abroad and I’m excited to share with you what I’ve learned. Leather craft is an adventure and is a beautiful, much needed counter to our constantly-busy digital life. I hope you will join me for a weekend session!
Sips and nibbles will be on hand to keep our creativity flowing!
All project materials, supplies, and tools are provided for the class.
The studio is in a private home tucked in the hills of Mill Valley and makes for a lovely getaway! Lots of natural light and pretty views all around. The town is about 15 minutes North of the Golden Gate bridge. It’s easy to find and there is plenty of parking.
