Join us to create your own keychain or bracelet! Class will begin with a demonstration so you can learn the skills necessary to make each item: measuring, cutting, punching, creasing, edging and finishing. Students will be provided with alternative options for assembly and discuss the importance of sketching and proper functional design, too. Then, students will encourages to use their creativity to develop their own style for each piece - and even add custom monogramming, if they'd like! Hardware, leather and some tools will be provided.
This class will take place at David Lane Design Studio: 1115 E. Main Street Rochester, NY 14609 Door #2 Suite 450.
About the teacher:
David Lane started working with leather as a side project to increase his personal watch strap collection in 2004. Not long after he started receiving requests from my friends and family. With advice and a blessing from his Grandfather, a former as a shoe cobbler in Budapest, he decided to begin selling his work. Since 2008 he has grown David Lane Design to an entire line of products, from keychains to briefcases, that focuses on high quality, handmade and hand sewn leather goods. David prides himself on doing things the right way, which often times takes longer and requires more skill and patience. The result is a truly one of a kind, heirloom quality piece of workmanship you can be proud of owning.
