Pouch Making Workshop

There will be a Pouch Making Workshop on Wednesday, 11 March, 2020 at the Port Ewen Church Hall for anyone interested in learning how to make a leather pouch. The workshop will be hosted by Mistress Alayne and myself.

Some leather working tools will be provided, but feel free to bring your own. Please bring any pieces of soft leather that you wish to use for your project, though a few pieces may be available. The class can begin at 6pm or whenever interested parties show up thereafter. The class will probably be downstairs and will probably end at 9pm. Thanks! –Seraq, Barok’s Penance MOAS
