Seward High Art: Leatherwork

I was inspired to do some deep cleaning in my supply closet and stumbled upon stashes of leather and leatherworking tools from the late 1990s I’d guess.  This deduction is due to finding Seward’s own Kris Peck’s name stamped into one of the scraps.   I decided to put this fine resource to use although I had literally no experience with leather tooling.  A few Youtube tutorials and a visit to Tandy Leather in Anchorage later, we were in business.  Students began with keychains to get the basic idea, and then moved onto a bigger project: wallets, holsters, belts, purses, dog collars, moccasins…  We tooled the leather, stamped it, stained it, painted it, riveted it, sewed it, and so on.  Here are some of their projects!  Way more here at our blog.
