Front Pocket Wallet: Tooled & Dyed

Front Pocket Wallet: Tooled & Dyed


This useful class will walk students through creating a wallet will hold up to about 6 cards & all the cash you need to carry. Instructor Ed LaBarre has created a simple yet educational pattern for students to tool & dye or choose to leave plain for a rich-looking finished piece. Ed will be teaching his “BearMan Realistic Leaves” tooling process and “Nature Colors” dye process. This experience will help students transfer what they learn to projects they can begin at home—your imagination is the only limitation! The class will finish with learning how to stitch a proper saddle stitch & to get a rich looking finish with these skills.

Come join us for a fun, informative & comprehensive project using “BearMan Style” and getting started the right way on your leatherwork journey!
