In this 3-session course, students will use vegetable tanned cow leather to make their own stylish backpack that properly fits their back. The backpack is for everyday use, yet roomy enough for an overnight hike. It will be strong and durable and if well looked after, it should last indefinitely.
This class is for beginners - no prior knowledge and experience are required. Students ages 13-17 may sign up if their parents are sure their youth is able to do the work and is prepared to stay for the duration. All materials and tools will be provided. If you would like to take notes, bring a notebook and pen. Please bring lunch (there are also many eateries nearby) and waterbottle.
Please note that the Making a Long Bow, Making Leather Shoes, and Making a Leather Backpack courses will run concurrently, and you may sign up for only one of these three courses.
