Leatherworking: Knife & Hatchet Sheaths with Macy Pryor
This hands-on workshop will give you the skills needed to design and create a custom axe or knife sheath. Learn the basic skills of leather crafting, including making a template, using a rotary cutter, edge bevel, edge kote, and rivets. From different types of tanning and the best types of hides to where to purchase materials, students will gain a good introduction to this utilitarian art form. All students will come away with one completed leather sheath for their knife or axe. Please bring the knife or axe you wish to create a sheath for.
