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, filligree, 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. This is the perfect complimentary workshop for Don Gonzales’ Repeating Belt Design!
