Purse Building Class With Chelsea Sazama of Rocking S Leather Shop


Purse Building Class
With Chelsea Sazama of Rocking S Leather Shop
January 17th and 18th, 2024

All levels are welcome in this purse building class! Students will each make their own purse from scratch. The pictures are the purse style we will be making – “Saddle Bag Purse”. Students CAN do modifications such as different geometric stamping, different fringe lengths or colors, different strap size, etc. The purse body is about 12” wide x 10” tall x 4” deep. It has 2 interior pockets. This is NOT a concealed carry purse, but it will teach you the skills to be able to make your own in the future.

Techniques to be covered are:
• Geometric stamping and how to prep the leather for that
• Applying finishes, paints, oils, etc after stamping
• Edging and edge finishing
• Gluing
• Buckstitching
• Fringe making
• Riveting

The techniques learned in this class can be used in a wide variety of leatherwork projects. I encourage all my students to continue to reach out to me with questions after classes are finished, no matter what the leatherwork project. If you have any questions about this class, feel free to call me – Chelsea Sazama – 406-939-2277.
