Amazing Leatherworking Class!!

Postby kleenur » Thu Nov 14, 2019 2:17 pm

I've noticed that a lot of us here like to work with leather for various projects. Certainly one can find a wealth of info online and learn through experimentation, but I find that it is helpful to take classes. Specifically, I like online classes since my particular territory is fairly rural. At any rate I stumbled across this little gem by Alex Agricola of Black Raven Armoury. It is a leather armor making course, but the skills he is teaching would be applicable to anything. As an engineering/design teacher myself there are a few things I REALLY love about this course.

-It goes into a lot of design theory as opposed to just telling you how to make certain things, or use tools
-It consists of 12 modules that get released every 30 days : This is key because the first couple of modules are all about design. This means you are FORCED to develop good design skills.
-He offers a certification
-His stuff is positively breathtaking.

His Armor Site:

The Academy Site:

"All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost."

-J.R.R Tolkien

I've seen his stuff in person before, and it's amazing.

That looks good, thanks for the link :P
Gimli: It's true you don't see many Dwarf-women. And in fact, they are so alike in voice and appearance, that they are often mistaken for Dwarf-men.
Aragorn: It's the beards.
