Instructor: Molly Grant

Skill Level: All Skill Levels

Molly Grants leather bag accessories class introduces students to the basics of pattern design along with creative ways to install zippers and interesting details that can make a leather bag unique. Learning how to make tassels and toggles and incorporating design techniques into each bag project will be a big part of the class.

Students will choose from a variety of bags to create, a cell phone bag, a larger purse with pockets, and small accessory bags. Leather color choices will be plentiful. Patterned leathers as well as smooth leathers in a pleasing array of colors.

The class starts with instructions on an industrial sewing machine and all students will have plenty of time to practice. Sewing machine experience helpful. If students have their own portable industrial machines they are welcome to bring them to class, as well as a sketchbook and sharp scissors.

There will be a 1-hour lunch break each day.

Please note: A materials fee of $150 is due to Molly at the start of the class. This fee covers all of your leather and materials needed to create your custom set of leather bags.
