In preparation for Mardi Gras or any other event that deserves a mask, we will go over the basics of wetmolding to take a flat piece of leather and turn it into a 3 dimensional leather mask. This is an introduction to a technique of shaping leather to create a hardened shape that is used for not only masks, but cases, holsters, bags, and anything else that should maintain its shape.

No previous experience with leather is needed as we will go over all the cutting and forming.

Both Events require basic machine safety gear

•Substantial shoes (no sandals or open toe) Hot metal chips can hurt.

•Long hair pulled back in a ponytail.

•Eye protection (safety glasses can be provided).

•Prefer no long sleeves, they can be rolled up though.

•Idea is to not have anything to catch on the spinning tool/part and pull you into the process.

Game Night Friday, Jan 27th

Folks, I'm setting up a game night on Friday January 27th, starting at 7PM down at the Hive.

I'm planning on bringing a few lighter games and a few more involved games. I'll have something for 3 players and I believe Ultimate Werewolf can have up to 63 players.

Feel free to bring any other games you might want to play as well when you come down.
