Are you just starting out on your tooling journey? Maybe you’re self-taught and need some direction on fundamentals that you may have skipped over. This class is intended to speed up your learning curve and give you a strong foundation to help build your own tooling style.

In this one day class you will learn the fundamentals of leather tooling, going in depth on the skills it takes to run the primary tools in floral carving. The largest focus will be your swivel knife, beveling, and shading. Then we will round out the pattern with a few other detail tools.

The unique advantage to this class is that you will tool the same pattern twice. This allows you to take in critiques, apply what you’ve learned immediately, and get feedback on your progress. You will leave with a tooled shell for a roper wallet that you can later construct, and a clear direction on what to focus on in your tooling practice.

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.
