About the course
If you're looking to learn a little leathercraft as a hobby, or you want to be frugal and save money by making it yourself, but don't want to spend 100's or 1000's of dollars on trials and error, you're going to want to check this class out. I'm Joshua Von War-Bear, and this is my leather class. You're going to learn a multitude of skills here. Basics, execution of techniques, leather theory as well as making all things applicable to future projects.
The first class will be a 2 part with making a bracelet and then a clip-on phone wallet. We're going to go through the alpha and omega of the project. From thinking around the project, making a pattern and then texturing, dyeing and assembling.
The second class will be leather armor and prop making for 1:6 scale figures. Following the same formula of the first class. Thinking about aesthetics, patterns, texturing, dyeing and assembly.
Overview of skills to be learned:
- Aesthetic philosophy behind the piece
- patterning and leather theory
- tooling leather
- aging, distressing and dyeing leather
- setting hardware into the piece
- extra aging and distressing post-completion
- caring for the leather
