Basic Leatherworking Class at Spindletop-Gladys City Boomtown Did you know leather is one of man’s earliest and most useful discoveries? It protected early man from the elements. Later, it was used to make sandals, clothes, gloves, buckets and more. During the industrial age, it was used to make belts for machinery. Due to its durability and comfort, leather has been used for seating throughout the history of transportation and furniture. Spindletop Gladys City Museum is excited to announce its next Leather Working Class scheduled for September 29 at 10 A.M.. Students will get to make a phone case while learning how to cut, tool and dye leather. They will add their own creative design. The class will be taught by Shane Granger, a self-taught leather worker who produces products such as knife sheaths, pistol holsters and belts. Students can see Granger’s work on his Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/shane.granger.79). The cost is $125 with a $50 nonrefundable deposit. There is room for 10 people to take the class.
