CraftED: Belt-Bag or Mini-Purse Workshop with Tesh Kosowan

Craft is a slow process that is best understood through participation. The Manitoba Craft Council has always aimed to promote and advocate for fine craft and its makers in Manitoba, and we are excited to be offering high quality, craft-based workshops to the public at C2 Centre for Craft.

In this class you’ll learn to use a stitching hole punch and a stitching pony.  You’ll saddle stitch, rivet and burnish.  And you’ll go home with your own belt-bag or mini-purse and all the skills and tools you need to make more.
