Wednesday, 05/15, 8:00am –5:00pm, W171, Sheridan College

All skill levels welcome!

Braces, suspenders, pant hangars…In this workshop, we’ll be making a set of leather braces, or whatever you’d like to call them. Chris will cover fitting the customer, making an alignment jig, and the assembly of your braces. Students should have time to stamp a basic geometric design if desired.

Materials to Bring: Students should have their own professional collection of properly shaped, sharpened, and polished tools: Pencil, head knife or similar, strop, 3/16” round punch, #2 and/or #3 common edge bevellers, and any stamping tools, including a swivel knife, stamping stone and maul, should you decide to decorate your braces. Chris will try to bring tools to fill in any gaps.
