WKS204: Laser Cut and Etched Leather Wallet
Class Number 1537-106573
Let's face it: So many wallets out there are pretty boring.
Since you take it with you everywhere, don't you want something more interesting? Here's your chance to make a custom leather wallet using a laser cutter! When someone admires your cool new billfold, you'll be able to say, "Oh this? I made it with a laser!"
In this workshop, you'll cut out a wallet design using the laser cutter. Then, you can etch into the surface of the leather to customize it to your heart's content! Finally, you'll hand-stitch your creation together into its fetching, functional final form. Your instructor will also provide valuable guidance on working with leather in the laser. You'll walk away with plenty of tips and tricks to help you continue working on laser projects that incorporate leather. Every student will leave this workshop with a personalized wallet that would make a perfect gift- or treat yourself and keep it for your own use!
