Leatherworking 1:  Widen your sewing skills by learning to select, cut, bevel, stitch and edge real leather. Learn about leather types and applications, hardware, dyes and finishes. Add your personal style and preferences to enhance basic belt and bag patterns with your new skills. You’ll  learn options for straps, pockets, lining, buckles, hardware and closures to suit your taste.  Once you have these skills, you are ready for future projects in handbags, backpacks and jackets.  Prerequisite: Industrial Machine Sewing (AD 210)
