Leatherworking Class: Mason Jar Coozie with Liz Wright
Learn how fun and easy it is to work with leather! Become familiar with how to stitch, rivet, and tool one of nature’s most durable and beautiful materials. You’ll leave with a unique thermal sleeve with your own design that will transform a standard mason jar into a personalized camp mug that’s perfect for hot and cold drinks! This class is designed for those with very little or no leatherworking experience. You’ll gain the basic skills and confidence you need to make all the leather goods your heart desires, such as wallets, belts, and jewelry.
