Unveiling our new Leather Studio!

leather_studio_1It’s official!  Toronto’s first DIY Leather Craft space has finally opened it’s doors for classes!  Our new space is located right on top of our Bloordale studio, at 1244 Bloor St. W (just steps from the Lansdowne subway station).  The space features hand tools for leather cutting, skiving and stamping, a rivet/snap press, an industrial leather walking foot machine as well as space for dying and finishing leather.  Check out the Leather FUNdamentals class page for dates and times!   The space also features a beautiful salvaged wood wall, made from stained and up cycled pallet wood from around the city. We had fun cutting up the old pallets and staining them different colours back in August when we started renovating.

Leather_studio_2The projects that people have been creating are out of this world – Lindsay King has been crafting leather and upcycled fur mittens (for sale through her Instagram) and other students have been making leather bags,  upcycled fur earmuffs, leather sunglass cases, iphone and ipad cases, sandals, moccasins and more!

  1. Hello!
    Mark here from Metal Art Studio in Etobicoke. Although we are primarily a metal fab shop specializing in film and TV work, we are known to branch out fearlessly into less familiar waters such as concrete, plastic, and now, leather!
    We have just taken delivery of an absolutely fantastic laser cutter engraver with a working area of about 4′ X 5′. We’ve been madly testing all sorts of materials from wood to concrete, and have discovered that leather cuts and engraves beautifully!
    I’d like to invite you to come out to our shop and explore the possibilities.
    You can contact me at metart20@gmail.com or 647-201-3823
