In preparation for Halloween 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, hats, and anything else that should maintain its shape.

We will have a few basic templates to base your design from and then form it to perfectly fit your face. Then you can go crazy dying, painting, bedazzling, and adorning your mask to suit how feel.

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

The $10 fee for the class covers everything to make the mask; leather, ribbon, dye or paint. If you want to be extra creative and add rhinestones or a life size pheasant to yours go ahead, but you'll need to supply the rhinestones and/or life size pheasant.

Woodworking Warden Hours Thursday 5:00 to 7:00

By Will B on

The first woodworking warden hours will be this Thursday from 5:00 to 7:00.

The warden hours are open to both members and non-members. The warden hours are for whatever purpose you need them to be for. If you need help planning a project, need to know how to safely use a tool, or just want to come in and work while someone is around to chat, feel free to stop in, and I will be around to help you out.

This week I've been asked to help out with planning a coffee/game table project. If that sounds like something you would want to build and need a brainstorming session, feel free to join in.

I'll also be doing some maintenance, replacing the planer knives and the bandsaw blade. If you want to learn how to use and adjust either of those tools, this is a perfect opportunity!

See you Thursday.
