WOW – Make a unique work of art from leather ~ there’s a huge selection to choose from! Join us at the Bowen for another great class with Tom. Learn how to tool and combine leathers and colors for your very own work of art! Tom will walk you through this fun little process so you will have a new skill and understanding of leatherwork when you’re done.

Choose from leather shoulder bags, phone pouches, leather belts, passport wallets, journals, drawstring pouches, and all sizes of clutch purses and totes. Depending on the project you chose you may even have time to make another!

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 would like 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.
