In this 2-hour class, we will learn how to make a custom-fitted leather belt. We will cover edge beveling, burnishing, and applying a finish. Included are all of your supplies and materials for one belt with your choice of solid brass or chrome buckle. Each person will leave with a working knowledge of basic leather tools, belt design skills and a completed belt that you've made 100% by hand. Loved what you learned? All leather working tools will be available for purchase following the workshop! This workshop is for adults ages 16 and up. No previous experience is needed.

Nice Custom Goods was born from a desire to own a well made, leather belt. Discovering that most belts were poorly made, Tyler Newberry set out to make a real belt that would last a lifetime. He made one, which he still wears to this day. His friends wanted one, too. Belts were just the start, though. Having inherited his grandfather’s tools, he had an epiphany – “I want to buy, or make, the kinds of things that my grandkids will want to inherit.” Useful things. Things you can carry into the woods, or the office. Ordinary things that will last. Nice Custom Goods is based in South Houston, Texas. Tyler Newberry has three, custom-made children with his wife, Leslianne. They have two cats, Carmel & Sugar.
