One vital technique to have in your arsenal when working with leather is that of wet molding – forming leather to a tight shape that fits whatever it is you’re making it to fit.

Employee Braden will guide you through tips and techniques regarding the finesse of wet molding your projects, and by the end of this basics class you’ll have the knowledge needed to start making more seamless, professional looking leather artwork. This is a basics class, so no prior experience in wet molding is necessary, however we do request that you be familiar with leatherworking already so that it’s easier for you to follow along. Ages 12+, class time is flexible based on the speed of the attendees, if class goes over the 1 o’clock mark a lunch break will be allotted.

All About Tandy Leather Machines

Instructor:  Jaimi

Ages 14+  (Some Restrictions for our Leathersmiths under 18 will apply.  Ask for details)

Cost:  FREE

 

As I’m sure you’re aware, Tandy offers several machines, (and small tools, but I’ll get to that), that you have likely looked at but are not sure if you’re ready to purchase.  Here’s your chance to give each of them a try and see what’s right for you!  In this class we’ll discuss and use the following Machines.  Bring your notepad and questions and we’ll go through everything and then play with each of them!

 

Machines Demonstrated:

  • Light Table:  This is an ideal tool for transferring your art from normal paper to Leather Tracing Film.  This is the first step in Leather Carving, (come take that free class too!)
  • Tabletop Lace/Fringe Maker:  This little beauty is perfect for cutting small panels of lace or fringe.  Or maybe you just need the occasional soft leather strip?  This is the tool for you!  (For thicker/more rigid leather, check out the Strip & Strap Cutter.)
  • Australian Sander:  Okay, I’m not sure this technically qualifies as a “machine” but it’s a great little tool that is often overlooked.  If you work with leather lace or again, just need the occasional strip of soft or rigid leather, this tool is great. 
  • Leather Splitter(s):  Both the Regular and Deluxe Leather Splitters are perfect for skiving/thinning belt and strap ends when folding, as well as making custom tapered cuts (Deluxe Splitter Only).
  • Both Hand Presses:  A must for every Leathersmith!  The Regular (Red) Hand Press is ideal for setting the most commonly used hardware, perfectly, every time.  It is especially great when you need to set a ton of rivets late at night while staying quiet.  The Deluxe Hand Press sets all the hardware the Regular Hand Press does, but additionally will accept 3D stamps and ABC Stamp Sets.  The depth of the press bar is adjustable allowing a perfect impression for stamps and hardware setting, every time.  The lever action is also ideal.  Once you’ve tried these, you’ll be saving your dollars to buy one!
  • Tippman Boss Heavy Leather Sewing Machine:  And here it is!  We get a lot of requests for demo’s on this beast and we are always happy to oblige.  Here’s your chance to try your hand at stitching leather up to ¾” thick.  If you’re stitching very heavy leather, or doing a lot of stitching, this is the machine for you.  But you be the judge.

 

No Tools or Materials Required.  All will be provided.

 

Space is limited and must be reserved on a first come, first served basis.  Call the store to have your name and number added to the list which will reserve your spot.  Seat priority will be given to those on the list who are present at the start of the class.
