Make a Custom Leather Tool Bag with Grady Douglass August 1-5, 2022
As craftspeople, we all know that having the right tool for the job goes a LONG way. Having a way to carry those “right tools” is equally important! In this weeklong class, students will learn the art of making a leather tote-style tool bag to efficiently carry all his or her most precious tools. Students will begin with hide selection, creating patterns, and laying out designs, and will move through the process of skiving, gluing, sewing, and riveting to complete a unique tool bag they can carry and be proud of for years to come. Each tool bag will be a medium sized, tote style carrying bag with two handles. And if time allows, MASW will open up the school’s laser to lasering your name on your tool bag (or patch) giving it a personal touch.
