Fearless Swivel Knife Use

Jim Linnell

Friday, May 18, 1 pm - 5 pm

W202, Sheridan Community College

Skill Level: All Skill Levels Welcome!

If you are one whose hand tenses up when it touches a swivel knife and a bit of fear brushes the pit of your stomach when your swivel knife touches the leather, this is a workshop for you. This workshop will take the participants beyond the basics of using the swivel knife. Once the fear of this tool is conquered, cutting in a pattern, decorative cuts, and even complete designs will be handled with confidence. By the end of the workshop, students will complete a piece of leather art using only their swivel knife. Leather donated by Tandy Leather.

Materials to Bring: Favorite swivel knife, stylus, strop, note taking supplies and all the questions you’ve ever had about mastering the swivel knife.
