Soft cow leather is advisable for the construction that will be covered in this class. The straps, however, will require thick leather.
Participants may bring their own cow leather, at least 10 square feet in size for the body of the bag. Leather may also be purchased at the studio, especially the ones that will be used for straps.
Students must also bring their Basic Leather Crafting Kit. Everything else will be provided at the studio.
