Workshop Description: Precious containers for precious contents, be it for an engagement ring, a coin collection or your favoured swivel knife. The art of making leather boxes has been around for centuries. I had the chance to see originals from close, study them and learn a few tricks. Using ancient knowledge combined with new means of making I propose to lead you step by step into the architecture of building a 100% leather box without any stitching. We also discuss different options. Examples of 15th Century cases will be shown for close examination. After this class you will not only bring back home an original mini leather casket, but also the keys to a wide range of new project ideas based on the principles acquired during this class. Attention, basic skiving skills are required. This workshop can be taught in French, German, English, Italian and Spanish.

Materials to bring: Skiving blade, small box cutter, a few stamping tools of your choice, a wing divider, bone folder, cutting board, small water spray bottle, and Band-aids.

Workshop Instructor: 2017 Al Stohlman Award winner Serge Volken (a.k.a.Bigfoot) has surprised us more than once with innovative design concepts. His design classes are more than just learning to draw a pattern. It is whole concepts – giving a key for each one to create an endless amount of designs other than the classics seen over and over again. His intention is to widen the design options for leather carvers. As he often mentions: Instead of handing out a banana you will get the key to the banana plantation. Serge speaks French, German, English, Italian and Spanish.
