About our program
This is a hands-on workshop where you will make your own leather paddle to take home with you.
This is for those who are completely new to leatherworking or who have limited experience. We will learn the basic skills needed to make a simple paddle. If there’s interest we will organize future classes to build on those skills. The skills you learn in this class can be built upon in later classes to make different types of cuffs, collars, leashes, paddles, floggers, corsets, etc - only your imagination is the limit!
Dominants: Nothing impresses a submissive more than a display of competence and creativity.
Submissives: Few things show your devotion to the practice of submission more than crafting an implement with your own hands.
Why buy something someone else has made, when you can make your very own to use with play partners? Personally made toys add that special “touch” ;-)
Note: The program runs from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm., but the program may run over depending on the drying times for the paddles.
