Carving, Finishing & Assembling a Notebook Cover Course
Class by Jim Linnell, brought to you by Weaver Leathercraft
Join Jim Linnell for three classes where he will take you through carving, dyeing & finishing, and assembling a small notebook cover. In the first class on October 12th, students will learn the important basics of leather carving as they carve a Texas Style pattern. In the second class on November 2nd, students will learn some basic dyeing & finishing techniques that will give vibrancy to their carving. In the final class on November 16th, students will assemble their project. This will be a very well rounded course in leather working that will benefit those getting started as well as those wanting to sharpen their skills.
All class sessions will be recorded and emailed to the entrants after the class has been completed in case you signed up and paid, but, can’t make it to a class or you show up late to a class. All email correspondence will be through Jim Linnell's Elktracks Studio.
Classes will be moderated so questions can be asked and answered throughout the entirety of the class.
