Sunday Afternoon Bushcraft: Leatherworking
February 10 @ 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm$19.00 – $39.00
Before we had synthetic wonder fibers for our clothes and shoes, kydex for our holsters and sheaths, or nylon for our packs and bags… we had leather.
Tanned animal hide has stood the test of time, because it works. When it’s taken care of, it’s tough, durable, weather-resistant, and lasts nearly forever. And knowledge of how to work it and use it is one of the hallmark skills of self-reliance.
In this half-day course, you’ll learn the ins and outs of leather craft, beginning with tools, terminology, and basic technique. We’ll touch on topics such as wet forming, dying, and stitching. And you’ll get the chance to get hands-on and complete your own leatherworking project.
Whether you want to learn how to make a sheath for your knife, a mask for your axe, a sling for your rifle, or even just a fob for your keys or a belt to hold your pants up, this course is your starting point.
