About Leathercrafting

SLO MakerSpace is now offering Leathercrafting with tools!

We require Leathercrafting – Basic Safety AND a Leathercrafting – Intro Class before using our leather working tools. If you have previous leatherworking experience, see Nami during Guru Hour to demonstrate your skills and if she finds that your skills and knowledge are enough she will pass you on through Basic Safety and/or Beginning Class Requirement.

See the calendar and events for current class info and times.

For the “By Request” class, please pay for the class and then email contact@slomakerspace.com to schedule a time with Nami.
