about this workshop

Whether you’re a leather crafter or woodworker, or one of the many craftspeople in between, you probably have some precious specialty tools that could benefit from a tool roll! Stamping tools, chisels, carving tools, lathe tools and multiple craft tools carry well in these leather pouches. Making your own leather tool roll will provide individual sized sleeves to house tools which will ensure no dings, chips or dulling occurs. In this two-day class, students will create their own handmade leather tool roll to securely store and transport his or her most special tools! And if time allows, MASW will open up the school’s laser to lasering your name on your tool roll (or patch) giving it a personal touch.
