My time off from leatherwork is about to come to an end though. Next Wednesday my five week leather carving course from Zeli's starts. I should probably take a look at the books I bought for the course and make sure I have all the equipment pulled together.
Here's the class description:
Students will learn how to use the 7 basic tools of leather carving, leather terminology, Dyeing techniques, lacing, etc. Class is limited to 6 people.
I suspect not all of it will be applicable to making period leather goods but learning the basic techniques will be helpful I'm sure, even if its just so I have some idea of what people are talking about if I seek advice from more experienced SCA leatherworkers.
On an unrelated note, we are still waiting to receive our judging forms from Kingdom A&S. I know a number of people have received theirs, so I'm not sure why ours haven't come in. I got some good verbal feedback on the day but it will be nice to see if my judges added anything else to the forms.
