You’ve been tooling for a little while and have a few projects under your belt. It's time to tackle a pattern that’s a little bit bigger. Maybe you’ve done some projects that you really like overall, but something happened “over there” that you’d rather cover up. There might even be something that just doesn’t look quite right with your tooling, but you haven’t been able to figure out what. Let Joe Meling help you.

This class shouldn’t be your first tooling experience. However, if you have a start to your leathercraft journey or are planning to start with one or both of the two earlier classes this week, then this class is for you. We are going to build on the skills you have and learn to have clean consistency across your project. In addition to tooling techniques, you will learn how to manage moisture in the leather throughout a larger piece.

You will leave this class with a tooled piece that can be later constructed into a padfolio. I’ve also had students use this piece as an added patch to different projects such as bags and purses. The most important thing that you’ll leave with, though, is the confidence to take on larger projects and buildable skills that will elevate your finished products.

Bring a maul and whatever tools you have. Don’t worry about not having the “right” tools. There will be tools you may borrow for the class and tools available for purchase if you find some you like and get good results with.

NOTE: If you truly want to fast track your learning and make big improvements in your tooling, register for all three classes being offered this week. These classes are ordered in a specific way so that each one will build more skills on top of the previous. If you want to get serious about tooling, then you will no doubt benefit from the full immersion experience of taking all three classes in a row.
