Intro to Leathersmithing - Upper Elementary to Adults / Fri 1:30-2:30pm
Weekly 60 minute classes.
Learn this art from a professional leathersmith!
Participants will learn basic skills : cutting, measuring, stitching and just taking joy in simple creativity as they craft their own items including one-of-a-kind leather journals!
Students can take this class independently, though we expect it will also appeal to parents so we are allowing adults to register as well. Leathersmithing often provides a great opportunity for teens to socialize and make new friends!
If parent's are going to be creating their own crafts and participating alongside their students then both need to be registered independently. If they are there to assist their child then only the child needs to be registered. If registering a child under 11 years old please plan on sticking around for the first class to check in with the instructor and make a plan. The fine motor skills may require parent help for young students. You can also email Kav in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org to ask questions and make arrangements.
Check our calendar for details. This class will follow the Quarterly calendar, except for third quarter which will only be five weeks for this class starting on March 5th for Third Quarter. Fourth Quarter will be 7 weeks and follow our calendar. The calendar can be seen posted here.
This class is taught by Kav. She is an incredible artist! You can find her bio and other classes offered here.
Limit of 10 students in this specialized class.
Location: Vancouver Homeschool HUB
Below you can register one quarter at a time, or a little cheaper per class if you register both 3rd and 4th quarters at the same time.
Signing up for multiple quarters of the same class at once now saves money.
My name is Kati but those that are close to me call me Kav!
I am a Jill of most trades but master of one (but I’m always improving!). I come way of Texas roots, Himalayan blood flow, grounded in Rocky Mountains and PNW tree lines. I love labs and hiking because it deepens my connection with the earth and the One who made me. I'm the owner of SoJo Leather Co. I make everything at Sojo by hand, one stitch at a time. It’s a slow process, but I function like a tortoise so it’s ok. I believe in hustling to make things work.
When it comes to leather goods, I care about our products and the story behind them. Each of our pieces are one of a kind heirlooms, never again to be exactly recreated.
