Join us at the Bowen for another great class with Tom that is fun and easy. Learn how to tool and combine leathers to create a work of art. Tom will walk you through this easy and fun process and will have a new skill and understanding of leatherwork when you’re done!

You will have time to make a leather shoulder bag of your choice or choose any project from the following: Leather belt, passport wallet, journal, phone pouch with braided strap, drawstring pouch, clutch purse, or a tote. Depending on the project you chose you may even have time to make another one.

You will be able to learn techniques of cutting leather, using basic tools, and stitching styles. If desired, you can learn how to use a wood burning tool to inscribe a design directly on to the leather and then colorize it. All leathers, materials, tools, and instructions are provided, along with templates. No artistic ability is necessary, nor is any previous leather working experience. The class typically runs from 10am to 4:30pm. You do not need to bring anything except lunch, enthusiasm, and your desire to make something beautiful!  Be sure to indicate which project you want to work on when you register.

Tom Slavicek is known throughout North Georgia for his fine leatherwork. He will help you through every step of the process. At the end of the class, you will walk out with beautiful, real leather items for yourself or as a gift!  And the class cost is a fraction of what you would pay for this unique gift – only $85 for a real leather work of art.
