Workshop Description: Learn the fundamentals of belt construction with Slickbald. Slickbald will construct a pant belt from start to finish in this workshop. He will cover sizing (length and width), belt and liner weights, splitting the liner, filigree, adhesives, design centering and layout, curving a belt to fit hips, hardware installation and choice, edge finishing, stitching, and applying a finish to the belt. This workshop will also cover shop tips and production techniques to help the student hit the ground running.

Materials to bring: Students should have their own professional collection of properly shaped, sharpened, and polished tools: pencil, head knife or similar, strop, round punches (3/16”), #3 and #4 common edge bevelers, wing dividers, small to medium basket stamps, maul and stone. Chris will try to bring tools to fill in the gaps.
