Event description

Description

In this class students you'll make an heirloom quality leather belt complete with gold monogramming. Robin from Toronto leather brand Fitzy will teach you the basics of leather working, the different types of leather, a few different leather working techniques, and the names of a few

of Robin's favourite local supplies. You'll be able to choose from black or caramel full grain leather, and narrow or wide brass buckles.

If you’re making your belt for someone else be sure to bring in their waist measurement. (Instructions
