WKS1205: Leather-Working- Create a Wrist Cuff!

In this workshop, you’ll learn fundamental skills for working with leather, and walk away with a wrist cuff that you made yourself! We’ll cover everything from pattern tracing and leather cutting, to embossing designs using traditional tools. We have a variety of design and alphabet stamps, which will give you a chance to personalize your project. While yes, in this workshop we’ll be making something cool, a lot of emphasis will be put on practicing technique with some of the more specialized leather crafting tools. At the end of this workshop, you’ll have experience with pattern transferring, how to properly case leather for tooling, tooling (stamping) designs, edge finishing and dressing, hardware setting and care of tools.

WKS1206: Bicycle Shop: Tires, Brakes, Derailleurs, and Chains

In this bicycle maintenance class, you will learn how to inflate tires, change tires (inner tubes and outer tires), patch tires, adjust brakes, replace brakes, adjust derailleurs, lubricate chains, and replace chains. In other words, you will learn how to fix some of the most common bike problems so you can do more repairs yourself and hassle less with taking your bike to a professional mechanic. This course also provides a foundation of introductory knowledge and skills you can build on for more ambitious projects like modding bikes and building custom bikes.



Feel free to bring in your own bike to work on, but understand that the instructor won’t be able to stop class to help you with problems or parts that are outside the scope of this course.
