In a bid to qualify for a presenter’s ticket for EMF camp, I have offered to do a Leather working workshop for Junior attendees of EMF camp. This is an attempt to gather all the information together so that it might actully happen, if I get the nod.
The idea behind the workshop is that the attendants will be able to buy a leather kit that contains some pre-cut pieces of leather that they can sew together and personalise.
Current ideas for designs:
- Punches for personalisation
- Hammers for punches
- Thread (several different colors)
- Needles (they will be part of the kit)
- Split rings for keyrings
Things to decide
- Design of keyring
- Design of wallet
Laser cutting speeds from trials:
10 mm/s @ 20% seems to work pretty well
30 mm/s @ 70% seems to also work
Cutting can be done from the back to avoid scorching.
Laser engarving settings:
200 mm/s @ 15%
