Class Description

New leather is durable, but costly on your pocketbook and the environment. In Upcycling Leather into Accessories, Blair Stocker will help you find second-hand sources for fine leather and teach you how to transform it into fresh, workable material.

As the author of Wise Craft: Turning Thrift Store Finds, Fabric Scraps, and Natural Objects Into Stuff You Love, Blair is full of helpful tips on upcycling old goods. In this class, she’ll teach you how to make gorgeous new leather goods from old ones. You’ll learn how to:

  • Pick the right tools for leather working
  • Prep, clean, and cut leather for re-use
  • Sew and glue leather pieces together

Projects will include; journal making, bookbinding, tassel making, stamping, and printing – all with leather.

Upcycling Leather into Accessories will make leathercraft an affordable and fun addition to your creative arsenal.

Blair has a very clear voice and takes us through the projects in a very calm and clear way. The projects are inspiring and just the general idea of crafting with materials found at thrift stores really appeals to me so definitely recommend this lovely little class.
