Roll the Dice (Dice Cups)
Wednesday, 05/15, 9:00am – 5:00pm, W203A, Sheridan College
All skill levels welcome!
This class will teach the construction of a heavy weight dice cup. This cup is made without having to sew it. It will be laced up the back but I will show you how to construct it in a way that the bottom is only glued and not sewn on. Students will tool a simple pattern on the front, but will mainly focus on the construction so that you will go home and be able to make more! Game night will never be the same!! Roll the dice!! But NO cheating!!!
Materials to Bring: Basic bevelers, modeling tool, mallet/maul, metal square, sharp knife, wing dividers, 1/8-inch lacing chisel, lacing fid, cutting board, tooling stone, skiving tool, large edger (we will be edging 14-16 oz. leather), small detail brush for dye, whatever you use to burnish your edges (products and tools) and a strap cutter.
Serina started her leather career slowly in 2009, doing a bit more each year. She was self-taught until she attended the Southwest Leather Workers Trade Show in Prescott in 2015, where she learned many great things from so many wonderful instructors! After attending the show, her leather world really took off! “I no longer feel alone in the leather world, and it is a great feeling!” Serina is married to her husband, Larry, of almost 32 years, has 3 adult children (and in-laws) and 6 beautiful grandchildren. She lives on their small ranch which includes 6 horses, about 70 chickens, 8 dogs and one cat. For fun and relaxation, Serina loves spending time with her family, trail riding and reading!
