Tassel Leatherwork

  • Kleur 724 Trade Street Northwest Winston-Salem, NC, 27101 United States (map)

If you’re like me, once you find the perfect bag, it’s impossible to let go of, no matter how worn it gets…especially if it’s still functioning. Some might say I’m just putting lipstick on a pig, but I try to hold on until the end, and adding a handcrafted double leather tassel to a well-worn strap feels like breathing new life into an old favorite. 

In this workshop, you’ll develop basic leather-working skills and leave class with your very own double-tassel, ready to wrap around the strap of any old, or new, favorite bag. 

  • WHEN: Wednesday, Dec. 7, 7-9p
  • WHERE: Kleur
  • SUPPLIES: Included
  • COST: $25
  • SKILLS REQUIRED: No skills necessary

You will leave class with the following:

  • A feel for the different types of leather and how to handle them
  • Confidence in leather cutting, punching, and stitching
  • An understanding of how to work with waxed linen
  • Boss tassel-making skills
  • Your very own Double-Tassel bag accessory

And once you learn the basics, you'll be able to make your own belts, necklaces, and as many double-tassels as you can stand, with just a few simple tools. 

*1 Double-Tassel included in the workshop price, but feel free to make as many as you’d like for an additional $10/per.
